TAMPA, Fla. – Leapdoctor.com, a local Tampa company founded in 2010, has joined the University of South Florida’s Tampa Bay Technology Incubator (TBTI). The company is a nationally exclusive job search engine for physicians, advanced practitioners and nurses.

Leapdoctor.com, founded by a practicing physician, aims to connect healthcare providers and their patients with products that streamline their daily interactions to foster better healthcare. The company provides Locum Tenens and permanent placement opportunities to physicians who are looking for a career advancement opportunity.

Leapdoctor.com currently has three products in production including the Leapdoctor.com search engine to advertise vacant healthcare positions to help users land the ideal job, Xalendar, an application to help schedule physicians more easily, and Go2CME, which allows physicians to track, organize and attain continuing medical education.

“We are focused on building a community of connected healthcare providers and healthcare facilities,” said Ronit Tyagi, president and chief executive officer of Leapdoctor.com. “Being in the healthcare field for over six years, we wanted to provide the tools and strategies needed to succeed in an ever evolving industry.”

As a TBTI Incubator company, Leapdoctor.com will receive in-house business development assistance from counselors, mentors and an entrepreneur-in-residence. Participants of the program also have access to office space as well as critical costly research equipment.

“We are so pleased that Leapdoctor.com has joined our Incubator program,” said Valerie Landrio McDevitt, USF associate vice president for technology transfer & business partnerships. “The goal of the TBTI is to meet the individual needs of companies like Leapdoctor.com and to provide the resources for successful business development and technology commercialization such as interns and opportunities to work with faculty.”

Leapdoctor.com has experienced major growth in the last two years, going from two full-time positions in 2014 to currently having six full-time employees and 16 student interns. “As a company founded by USF alumni, we are happy to continue building our relationship with the university through the TBTI program,” said Tyagi. “Our company prides itself on hiring USF students and providing opportunities to help grow the local Tampa ecosystem.”

Leapdoctor.com recently won first place in the 4th Annual Building Entrepreneurship Around Tampa Bay (B.E.A.T.) Event Pitch Competition and received $500 courtesy of FloridaFunders.
