History and Mission
Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership, Inc. was chartered in 2008 as a non-profit 501(c)(6) membership organization. It is comprised of technology companies and technology users, economic development groups and higher education institutions which are united to promote and expand our regional technology sector through seminars, forums and educational programs; and to represent the interests of the regional technology sector before federal, state and local government agencies.
SWFRTP will be recognized as the leading technology-cluster interest group in Southwest Florida.
•· Recognizing that our economy is not constrained by government boundaries, SWFRTP will be geographically regional.
•· Recognizing that the interests of the technology cluster transcend technology alone, the SWFRTP will continually create linkages with IT users and service providers; education and economic institutions; institutinos; and intellectual property and venture capital resources.
•· Recognizing that our members are our lifeblood, the SWFRTP will create value-added programs and services for our members.
SWFRTP has adopted three core strategies that guide its activities. They are known as "The 3 Cs:" Catalyze, Cultivate, and Connect, as described in the box in the left column.
