How businesses benefit when part of an innovative community


There’s tremendous buzz these days about innovation. Large companies try to kick-start sales with new state-of-the-art products, competing against startup businesses introducing truly groundbreaking offerings. Often, the big companies swallow the small entrepreneurial companies to get their hands on technology and gain a competitive edge in the market.

One thing is for sure; all of this is good for the economy.

In fact, many communities believe it’s the path forward for them. It seems like it’s happening everywhere, including here in Florida. Miami, St. Petersburg, Tallahassee, and Gainesville have developed innovation districts, while other areas including Hillsborough County and Mount Dora are planning to roll out innovation districts.
