How does Align help businesses throughout Florida?
With a focus on small and mid-sized businesses, the Align team is dedicated to empowering entrepreneurs and small business owners throughout the state through raising capital to grow and then successfully selling their company.
Align is devoted to growing investment activity into Florida businesses through its network of global institutional investors, specifically with a focus on supporting healthcare, manufacturing, technology and industrial services sectors. Align clients have all gone on to grow significantly, bringing thousands of jobs and tax dollars into the state.
Tell us why you joined the Florida Chamber and its Small Business Council and what you would say to other business leaders about the benefit and value of this council?
Align’s mission is to foster the growth of small businesses through M&A. Billions of dollars are invested each year via M&A into Florida businesses, bringing jobs, growth, and development to our great state. In partnering with the Florida Chamber, we wanted to work with fellow business leaders and legislators who can directly impact the ability for private investment to continue to flow into the businesses in our communities and deliver rapid growth and prosperity.
