Thanks for picking up and reading the
second issue of Treasure Coast Business, the
publication dedicated to all things business
across the Treasure Coast. We have received a
lot of terrific feedback regarding the publication
since our inaugural issue hit the streets
and business suites back in June. Readers tell
us they appreciate the dedication to serious
business content and stories, and many
business owners and operators say they were
pleased to finally see a magazine dedicated
to covering Treasure Coast business activities
A couple of quick acknowledgments and
some thank-you notes to those who have
made this important publication possible:
Thanks to our talented and professional
staff of writers, designers and sales staff for
bringing this publication vision to printed
Thanks to all those advertisers whose
support makes this publication possible —

Thanks to the Florida SBDC Network leadership team who shared the vision of creating a
dedicated small business publication for the Treasure Coast and beyond.
The Treasure Coast business community is filled with innovative, savvy and experienced
business owners, managers and entrepreneurs, who possess remarkable business acumen. The
region is home to thousands of small- to medium-sized enterprises that are contributing in big
ways to our local, state and national economies (see our “Made on the Treasure Coast’’ story on
The region is also fortunate to have economic development organizations that are staffed and
lead by dedicated, intelligent, experienced economic development professionals with a passion
and understanding for marketing and representing their respective counties (Around the Region
on Page 54).
Finally, the Treasure Coast is fortunate to be home to Aspen Prize Winning Indian River State
College, an institution of higher education and workforce training. Whether it is providing traditional
two- and four-year degrees, offering unique workforce and certification training programs
or launching new and innovative apprenticeship programs to support our region’s growing
advanced manufacturing industry, IRSC, through visionary leadership, consistently remains in
front of a dynamic Treasure Coast and Okeechobee marketplace and its workforce needs. Check
out the June issue and the Treasure Coast Advanced Manufacturing Center at IRSC.
The rate of growth and expansion along the Treasure Coast marketplace is accelerating, with
changes visible almost daily. Treasure Coast Business is dedicated to providing comprehensive
coverage of the business community and keeping pace with the marketplace’s growth and
expansion. The magazine is the go-to publication for the region’s business professionals.
