The Greater Pensacola Bay Area and Northwest Florida are home to several military bases with technical, training, and research missions. This has created a cluster of IT and research companies and attracted a solid technical workforce.
AREA MILITARY RETIREES
NEW RETIREES EVERY YEAR
We have over 34,000 military retirees, one of the largest concentrations in the nation. These professionals are educated, disciplined, technically proficient self-starters; the type of employees that all leaders want in their companies. Many of these individuals are looking for their next career.
The sizable military economic impact in the Pensacola region includes not only those employed directly with the military, but also the civilian and defense industry workforce. Corry Station’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) is expected to double in size over the next several years.

In Their Own Words: AppRiver
“Northwest Florida has all the pieces in place to become a hub for cybersecurity and other high-tech, knowledge-based companies. I fully expect that many more business leaders are going to come to the same realization I did many years ago; technology companies can locate and do business anywhere, so why not choose a region that has rich history, beautiful natural treasures, a high-quality education system, and a strong commitment to creating a great business climate? The future looks bright as FloridaWest, the Santa Rosa County EDO, and chambers of commerce work hand-in-hand with the business community to grow talent, attract capital, assist startups, and recruit companies to move to this incredible area.”
