Algenol Awarded Governor’s Innovators in Business Awards

Today, Florida Governor Rick Scott and Secretary of Commerce and President and CEO of Enterprise Florida (EFI), Gray Swoope announced the winners of the 2013 Governor’s Innovators in Business Awards during Florida Business Innovators Week. The awards recognize Florida companies in select industries that have influenced the state’s economic growth and diversification over the last year.

Governor Scott said, “Florida’s economy has experienced a huge turnaround. In three years, Florida has added over 446,000 private-sector jobs and our unemployment rate has fallen below the national average to 6.4 percent. Businesses are able to thrive because we have created an economic climate in Florida that supports job creation. I want to congratulate all of the companies being recognized today for their hard work in creating jobs and helping to create an opportunity economy in Florida that supports jobs for generations to come. Florida families are able to live the American Dream with the help of the successful, innovative companies that call Florida home, and I am proud to recognize some of those companies today."

Secretary of Commerce Swoope said, “Florida and its companies continue to be the model for economic recovery and growth. Companies from every industry around the state have helped produce jobs and provide opportunities that companies in other states just haven’t been able to match. They truly deserve to be recognized for their resilience, innovation and achievements. On behalf of EFI, congratulations to each of these worthy companies and we look forward to their continued success.”

Algenol won in the Governor’s Innovation/Entrepreneurship Award category which is described as "Florida start-up companies or innovative companies that have set a standard for entrepreneurship and creativity in the past three years."
