GTEC to expand facilities, program —
Some big changes are coming to the Gainesville Technology Entrepreneurship Center. Bill Dorman is GTEC’s Director who says, "We're going to have a greater number of people, greater concentration of interest in technology and entrepreneurship here in Gainesville and we hope to create jobs and job growth here in Gainesville." While the program is managed by Santa Fe College, it's open to any entrepreneur. The center provides mentorship and guidance, and of course, office space for local start-ups.
