Florida Trend Spotlight:  High-Tech Corridor

The Florida High-Tech Corridor’s progress toward a significant role in the nation’s high-tech landscape can be charted both objectively and subjectively.  Objectively, jobs and companies can be counted:  A decade ago, the 23 counties that have banded together to market their high-tech assets as the Corridor counted 7,600 companies employing 135,000.  Today, the Corridor encompasses nearly 21,000 tech-related companies and 238,000 technology jobs.

Less precisely measured but just as significant is the collaboration that the non-profit High Tech Corridor Council development initiative and its leaders have engineered into the activities of the high-tech players — the University of Florida, University of Central Florida and University of South Florida, along with 14 community and state colleges, private schools, more than 20 economic development agencies, 12 regional workforce boards and numerous industry groups and private companies.
