Tech Companies Pushing into Southwest Florida
Naples is far from a Silicon Valley in California or a Tech City in London.
It doesn't have Facebook, Twitter, Google or Apple. Yet, there's a growing technology sector that' s driving innovation and creating jobs in Naples — and across the region.
The tech sector is still a small part of the local economy, and job numbers are difficult to track, but they're slowly growing.
In Collier County alone, more than 3,460 people worked in computer, information and software related jobs in 2011, according to the Florida Research and Economic Database. That number is expected to grow to more than 4,100 by 2019, with annual job openings estimated at 148.
