Issue 73 May 9

This week we welcomed Jamal Sowell from Enterprise Florida, formerly the Florida Department of Commerce. He spoke to us about the Governor’s plans and ideas for business in Florida. The two topics I found most interesting were how easy it is for people to come to Florida and build a business and life and that the best way to bring businesses to Florida is by investing
in the infrastructure and people of the state so businesses will have a ready workforce when they get here. Additionally, Enterprise Florida is focusing on businesses that have employees running the gambit from trades and skilled laborers to those holding advanced degrees.

Please join us next week when we welcome Daniel Davis, President and CEO of the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce.
