In one of the Southeast United States’ most dynamic waterfront downtowns, the St. Pete Innovation District is the professional home to thousands of scientists, doctors, educators and entrepreneurs working together to make life better.

From the impact of oil spills on marine life to finding a cure for childhood diabetes, researchers in the St. Pete Innovation District tackle tough questions alongside colleagues in a regional marine research hub, two hospitals, a university, a world-renowned media school, a business incubator and several other public and private research organizations.

All this activity takes place in a walkable, bike-friendly district that offers countless waterfront views, a working port and an executive airport in a lively urban setting.
