about the corridor

More than a sector or an industry, high tech touches and transforms our world on a daily basis.

The Florida High Tech Corridor is more than an initiative or facilitator; it’s a force multiplier.

The 23-county region that defines The Corridor is anchored by three of the country’s largest research institutions: the University of Central Florida (UCF), the University of South Florida (USF) and the University of Florida (UF). Our mission is to converge and catalyze the capacity of high tech, innovation, and bright minds to generate a global ripple effect that advances the lives of people in the communities we serve. Powered by an ethos of collaboration, we align opportunities and resources in academia, industry, and economic development to unleash our region’s exponential potential.

Led by the presidents of UCF, USF and UF, The Florida High Tech Corridor leverages a unique perspective and the strengths of our world-class research institutions to accelerate regional economic development.
