Florida ranks as the fourth state in high-tech establishments, is the third-largest exporter of high-tech products, and fifth in high-tech employment. More than 26,000 IT companies that call Palm Beach County home employ close to a quarter of a million workers.

With a strong base of knowledgeable, experienced workers, ready access to high-speed global networks and cooperative alliances, Palm Beach County provides a stimulating environment for technology and communication companies. The industry is bolstered overall by a world-class telecom infrastructure, a strong and ever-growing technology base, and an increasing number of highly experienced and multi-lingual workers coming from our state colleges and universities.
