A Stronger Foundation

David Denor | 3/29/2021

One of the things that I am most proud of at Florida Trend is our team’s desire to constantly evolve. During our 63 years in business, Florida Trend has reported on and been part of many business cycles. Through the years, we’ve had to pivot with the markets and re-evaluate our editorial and business offerings — as is the case with any smart business. One thing that has always remained constant over our 63 years, I am proud to say, is the editorial integrity of Florida Trend. And I guarantee that will not change as long as I am publisher.

Our engagement with our audience is also a top priority. We want to be accessible in whatever way is most convenient to you — whether it is via our print product or through our digital offerings.

We are always looking at ways to engage, interact with and inform you. On that note, I am excited to share that we recently launched a new weekly video newscast called Florida Trend Business Beat. Anchored by Florida Trend digital content specialist Aimée Alexander, the Business Beat delivers a 2-minute roundup of the week’s most important business headlines, including Florida Trend exclusive content.

Florida Trend Business Beat is just another way we help you keep up with the news that’s important to Florida and to your business. Look for it every Friday morning via our Daily Pulse eNews alert and at

I may be a little biased, but I think you are going to find it hard to put down this month’s issue of Florida Trend.

Our Economic Backbone section looks at what you, as an investor, should consider now that we have a new administration in Washington and an economy that’s making its way past the pandemic.

The issue also features our annual look at the health care landscape in Florida. Learn about the headwinds hospitals still face and how COVID is leading to an evolution in care. In addition to the problems created by the pandemic, the state is also grappling with an opioid epidemic that has intensified.

Rounding out the issue is our third annual Florida Education Guide, which compares more than 30 post-secondary educational options.

All of us here appreciate your commitment to Florida Trend and look forward to continuing to keep you informed, engaged and up-to-date on all the business activity around the state.
