Forbes has released its list of Top Emerging Tech Cities in the U.S. and Tampa has been ranked at #1! Tampa has beaten out popular tech cities such as Miami and San Francisco. Forbes describes our wonderful city as the tech capital of Florida.
Over 25% of Florida's tech jobs belong in Tampa and the number continues to rise.
