The Florida Growth Fund Added Investments in 2010, but It Is Still Too Early to Assess Total Economic Impact, Report No. 10-60, December 2010
 
Full report in PDF format


As of November 2010, Florida Growth Fund managers had invested $73 million in seven Florida-based technology and growth companies and four private equity funds that invest in such companies. These investments represent 29% of the fund’s total $250 million in assets. Although some of these companies report creating jobs, it is too early to assess the total economic benefits to the state provided by these investments.
