Economic Development

Our work has supported the attraction of high-wage technology jobs to Florida, inspired competitors to partner for the betterment of their communities and promoted educational programs closing skills gaps. We understand the important connections between agencies that collectively build a community – from utilities to health care to education to private industry – and subscribe to the belief that “he who wins at workforce development wins at economic development.”


In Good Company

As a partner to the Florida High Tech Corridor Council since it was founded in 1996, Curley & Pynn has been immersed in the world of technology-driven economic development for nearly three decades. Over the years, our partners have also included clients such as Enterprise Florida, Orlando Economic Partnership, Core Communities, Economic Development Commission of St. Lucie County, GrowFL, Lee County Economic Development Office and the UCF Business Incubation Program.
