The Steering Committee of TechGateway, South Florida's regional technology cluster asset map and marketing initiative, extends its sincere thanks to Wells Fargo for investing in efforts to strengthen technology small businesses through a grant of $20,000 to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance Foundation, which administers TechGateway.
“Wells Fargo is proud to support TechGateway. Building and branding South Florida as a technology hub contributes to the growth of businesses of all sizes, including small businesses that are the backbone of our economy and startups that power innovation,” said Erick Strati, Senior Vice President and South Florida Market Executive for Wells Fargo.
"This investment in TechGateway allows us to amplify our efforts across the region and beyond, continuing to raise awareness of our strong technology sector and puts South Florida tech 'on the map,'" said Ben Wesley, External Affairs Manager for FPL and TechGateway Chair.
The South Florida TechGateway is an annually produced asset map identifying tech companies by logos, providing a high-impact, quick view of the numerous tech businesses in South Florida. Corresponding digital maps have activated company logos that provide information with links directly to each company. There are also links to job listings, making it easy for tech workers to search for opportunities with local companies. TechGateway Day! is an annual event at which poster-size TechGateway asset maps are distributed to every middle and high school in Broward County Public Schools and local technologists speak to several hundred students about careers in technology to inspire them and make them aware of opportunities in South Florida
