This article presents news from the Sarasota County Committee for Economic Development, Sarasota, Florida. Creativity, technology and entrepreneurial drive. The experts tell us these are essential ingredients for a healthy economy in the new millennium. It bodes well for Sarasota County that those qualities define much of our business community. Winners of the annual Excellence in Industry awards, profiled in this issue of "Insider News," are prime examples. We can catalog and count the economic impact of businesses like these, the taxes they pay, the capital investments they make. Sarasota County businesses account for a significant portion of contributions-both financial and volunteer-that fuel the educational, social and arts causes in our community.
