Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Monday a number of initiatives that encourage financial technology (FinTech) companies to start, relocate and expand in Florida.
The governor was joined in Jacksonville by Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis, Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) Executive Director Ken Lawson, Mayor Lenny Curry and business and community leaders from throughout Duval County.
“From day one, we’ve made it a priority to create a regulatory environment that provides opportunities for businesses in the financial technology and banking sectors to thrive without being impeded by high taxes and burdensome regulation,” said DeSantis. “The initiatives announced today demonstrate we are committed to making Florida the top destination for FinTech companies to grow and succeed.”
Said Patronis, “I’m proud to partner with Governor DeSantis as we are focused on fostering an environment to support growth and innovation here in Florida through FinTech. We must ensure common-sense regulations are put in place to guarantee a stable market that protects consumers. To the global financial system, the Sunshine State is open for business.”
