Sharing a testimonial from Bob King, President of the Florida Institute of Technology about the 2022 #SpaceCoastSymposium:
 
“Your most recent Space Coast Symposium was an unexpected treat. The array of entrepreneurs, the businesses they have started, and the technologies being employed are breathtaking. Having lived and worked in several different parts of our Country, few places can match the energy, innovation and opportunity that now exists across the Space Coast.
Thank you so much for educating me on these incredibly dynamic companies that are integral parts of this community. At Florida Tech we will do all we can to support the economic growth and prosperity that will surely follow.”
