Only Tallahassee, Florida has the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. That, combined with the research and workforce development capabilities of the town's two universities and community college, make for unique and valuable assets in both attracting out-of-town business, as well as new home-grown enterprise. To talk about the initiative are: Greg Boebinger, Director of the High Magnetic Field Laboratory; Cristina L. Paredes, Director, Tallahassee-Leon County Office of Economic Vitality; Abby Queale, CEO at Magnetics Corporation; Ricardo Schneider, President, Danfoss Turbocor Compressors; and Jeff Whalen, STEM Entrepreneur in Residence at the FSU Jim Moran College of Entrepreneurship.
