The Intersection of Creativity and Technology
Sarasota County’s cultural infrastructure ranks among the best in Florida. Home to one of the best arts schools in the Southeast, Ringling College of Art & Design has created a culture that pushes for a higher level of creativity and innovation.
Today, nearly every industry leverages or engages the creative economy in some aspect. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the creative economy “is an evolving concept which builds on the interplay between human creativity and ideas and intellectual property, knowledge and technology. Essentially it is the knowledge-based economic activities upon which the ‘creative industries’ are based.” Sarasota County is uniquely positioned to help companies in this sector grow, which is why many have been drawn to our coast. With the right environment—geography, business incentives, and workforce—to grow this particular sector now, and for years to come.
