The event which featured Villamil as the Keynote Speaker was covered by Dave Hodges from The Tallahassee Democrat, and focused on the US, Florida and Tallahassee regions. Overall, Villamil said the “Tallahassee region – the Capital Region – is doing much better than the nation and is also starting to emerge as a key area relative to economic diversification” adding that the Tallahassee region also has a “higher education corridor in terms of talent creation and entrepreneurship, which is very important.”
