Southeast Florida

Boca Raton

» Tech companies are leading the recovery, evidenced by the expansion of incubator Enterprise Development Corporation of South Florida in Research Park at Florida Atlantic University. The park is also home to growing companies such as 3-year-old Modernizing Medicine, which provides cloud-based specialty electronic medical records software. The company more than doubled its client base and workforce during 2012 and raised $12 million in investment. In October, it launched a version of its software for plastic surgeons. Like all of its software, it operates on iPads and computers (via a web application). Another mobile technology company at Research Park, MobileHelp, is also growing rapidly. The company makes a medical alert system that integrates cellular and landline wireless technology with GPS to alert not only emergency personnel but also a user’s family. In January, it introduced a pendant that automatically detects falls.

» Established technology companies are growing, too. Boca-based 3Cinteractive, which makes software to help corporations reach customers on their mobile phones, hit $28.7 million in revenue in 2012 and was named to Forbes’ list of “America’s Most Promising Companies.” Boca-based data center and managed services provider Host.net added 19,000 square feet of space in the city in December, and in January a Canadian private equity firm took a majority stake in the company.
