Gainesville by the Numbers

Businesses are launched in Gainesville and many move here for the same reason: this is a smart city. In fact, you'll find us among the Top 25 of the Smartest Cities in America, according to And Popular Science Magazine has called Gainesville the Top Tech City in Florida.

People in Gainesville are making things happen. Big things that make a positive, lasting impact. Gainesville has more incubators per capita than any other U.S. city. That should come as no surprise to those who already live here, 39% of whom hold bachelor's degrees or higher. (The national average is 24%.)

Gainesville is home to UF, one of the nation's leading research universities and premier healthcare systems.

The city attracts innovative young companies, as well as aspiring young talent. Next Generation Consulting, a marketing research firm, cited Gainesville among its 10 Hotspots for Young Professionals to Live & Work. And Alachua County is listed among the Top 100 Communities for Young People by America's Promise Alliance.

Gainesville's Status Continues to Rise

Top College Town, Top 10 among Small Cities, Best Places to Live & Play, and Best Places for Outdoor Activities. The list goes on. Innovation Square is proud (and smart) to call Gainesville home.
