Florida Trend featured Gainesville in the February 2014 issue. The full Business Portrait covers Gainesville, Alachua, High Springs and Hawthorne with the latest demographics, reports on major economic drivers, business assets, top employers, notable firms and promising new businesses.  

The issue also covered Gainesville civic leaders who are forging a new identity for the area as a center for innovation and an ideal city to launch a business or relocate a tech company. They've wisely capitalized on the University of Florida's strengths in science and technology and research and education to grow more technology-based companies. Our very own Nick Banks was one of them!

Friendly faces, businesses, projects and parks such as Plum Creek, Progress Corporate Park, Fracture, Starter Space, Tioga Town Center, Nanotherapeutics, and AxoGen were featured in this issue. Well known companies were also mentioned such as MindTree, Mobiquity and Sears Holding, all of which who were noted in making smart decisions in choosing to expand their organizations to Gainesville.

There's so much to see in this issue, and what a great representation of growth and development within our community, yet again attracting national attention! See snapshots of the issue below! To read the full issue, click here!
