The Florida High Tech Corridor has been integral in helping us develop some technology for going and being able to take our vision and make it a reality. We’ve been partnered with the University of Central Florida on bringing our applications to a handheld device for them to be able to do education training anytime and anywhere. We wouldn’t have been able to achieve that without the funding and the leadership and the vision from the Florida High Tech Corridor.

In Florida in general, we have a high technology emphasis that has become more and more important and valuable to a lot of people, like me, who are looking to move technology from the academic environment into the working environment.
The main benefit our company has with the Florida universities is we hire a lot of talent. We use students as interns here in Orlando, at our facility in Tampa, and at our health care facility in Sarasota.
