A Word from the Publisher

Andrew P. Corty | 9/20/2012

Welcome to Business Florida 2013, the 17th consecutive edition of Florida’s official business opportunity guide.

As this edition goes to print, it’s obvious that the state’s increased emphasis on business development and job creation has taken hold, and the results are starting to show.

On the opening pages we cut right to the chase — the “Top 5 Reasons to Do Business in Florida” — beginning with the extraordinary business climate and the huge market opportunities that await you here. In our new “Targeted Industry Sectors” section, you’ll meet CEOs from companies representing the high-impact industry sectors we’re welcoming to Florida.

You’ll learn, too, about Florida’s eight geographic regions and about the businesses that are moving in to take advantage of unique assets each region has to offer. Rounding out this exceptional lineup is “Research Florida,” a special report focusing on cutting-edge discoveries in medicine, marine science, agriculture, anthropology, energy, engineering and more that are occurring daily on university campuses and at private research institutes across our state.

Business Florida 2013 is truly a testament to the strength and resilience of Florida’s economy. As the nation climbs out of challenging times, exciting things are happening here. I encourage you to read about the opportunities available in Florida and to seriously consider becoming a part of our dynamic business environment. We’re waiting to welcome you home.
