Jacksonville is a frontier for talented, creative individuals, supplying innovative ideas to expand our community. Art collectives, co-working spaces, bar and entertainment districts, and even food trucks have emerged here over the past few years.

A spike in the region’s financial services, logistics and health care industries – all with heavy information technology needs – has attracted more employers and IT professionals to the region.

This convergence of creativity and technology has resulted in numerous forward-thinking business ventures, conferences and activities in the region, including One Spark, University of Florida’s Innovation Hub, Healthbox and much more.
