Today in the Rotunda on the 4th floor of the Capitol, Florida’s Partners in Prosperity expressed the importance of valuable tools like QTI and the Florida Job Growth Grant Fund, the value of Rural Florida to the diversity of our economy, and successful collaborations among businesses, higher education, workforce, and economic development.
Here is a snippet from the presser by Jamal Sowell, president & CEO of Enterprise Florida, Inc.:
“As part of the Economic Development Week, let me report to you that the state of Florida commerce is expanding and full of potential, ... We are poised for greater heights, and now is not the time to let the foot off the gas pedal. Together, under Governor Ron DeSantis’ leadership and the pro-business policies this legislature embraces, the sky is the limit.”
You can carry this momentum through next week by sharing your communities’ success stories of job creation, industry diversification, capital investment, talent retention, training, and attraction.
