“One of the ways we’ve been able to provide industry-leading HR software is by relying on fresh ideas from the best talent,” said Adam Rogers, chief technology officer at Ultimate Software. “We believe that the future of technology isn’t just in Silicon Valley, but also here in South Florida. Through our $1 million extended partnership, we’re working closely with FIU faculty and local high school teachers to help prepare the brightest students for successful careers in tech across the region. Our overall goal is to have a lasting impact on the lives of aspiring tech leaders.”
From Miami and Boca Raton to Tallahassee and Jacksonville, SUS universities are involved in public-private partnerships that give Florida employers access to a wide variety of resources, infrastructure and talent to choose from. Florida offers an unparalleled environment for university partnerships and access to university research, and Florida already surpasses many states in terms of producing high-skilled graduates and cutting-edge research.
A key driver for Think Florida is to connect our state universities with appropriate and relevant business partners on global, national and local levels with the end goal of forming mutually beneficial relationships. This is an opportunity for our 12 SUS institutions to showcase the talent of Florida graduates, reinforce the marketplace adaptability of university research, and take cooperation between the state universities and the business community to the next level.
