Forbes ranks Tampa as the No.1 tech city

August 26, 2021 - Tampa has outranked tech hubs such as San Francisco, Austin and Miami on Forbes' list of Emerging Tech Cities. There are over 50 software and IT companies in Tampa and Tampa is responsible for over 25% of Florida’s tech jobs, according to Forbes. The top-ranking was highly credited to Jeff Vinik and Bill Gates' investment in developing Water Street. "Vinik and Gates’ support is just the nitroglycerine in an already revving engine. Tampa’s positioned to become one of the tech capitals of the American South in the coming decade," Forbes wrote. The rise of Embarc Collective and investments made by Florida Funders were also mentioned. See the full list here
