Forbes just named Tampa as the top emerging technology city in the country.

Why it matters: We beat out New York City, Miami, San Francisco and all the other well-known tech hubs.

Why we're #1: We're responsible for more than a quarter of Florida’s tech jobs, and more than 2,000 new tech jobs are anticipated this year.

  • High-profile investors like Bill Gates and Jeff Vinik have invested $3.5 billion in our tech-geared real estate projects, like Water Street.
