TAMPA, Fla. — Nitro Mobile Solutions, a leading mobile software technology, consulting and services provider that helps business streamline operations and access new revenue channels, announced today that it has invested in the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation at the Executive Committee level.
Nitro invested in the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation after the organization assisted the company with workforce recruiting and its recent move to a 9,000 square foot office at 501 East Kennedy Blvd. in downtown Tampa.
“We’ve had only positive experiences with the EDC and as our business has grown, we recognized what they could do for us, Tampa and Hillsborough County as a whole,” said Pete Slade, founder and CEO of Nitro. “They’re working hard to bring talent to the area and build a stronger business landscape and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to participate in that.”
The Tampa Hillsborough EDC, whose mission is to “develop and sustain a thriving local economy by focusing on the attraction, expansion and retention of high-wage jobs and capital investment” helps organizations grow by facilitating connections between business leaders and providing access to resources needed for local expansion.
“We’re excited to add Pete Slade to our Executive Committee leadership,” said J.P. DuBuque, the EDC’s Interim President and CEO. “As one of our region’s fastest growing and most dynamic technology companies, Nitro is helping to shape Tampa’s economic future. Their culture and ability to attract first-rate talent are putting Hillsborough County on the map as a preferred destination for highly skilled people and innovative companies.”
Working with the EDC, Nitro plans to add up to 35 new high-wage jobs by 2018. Its goal is to expand locally, attract exceptional talent and work to position Tampa as a desired business destination — helping build a foundation for Hillsborough County’s economic success.
