TAMPA, Florida., June 23, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The Florida Technology Commercialization Institute (Florida Institute) announced today that it has a funding agreement with vigtec.io, a platform that gives DIY retailers and investors a competitive advantage by uncovering hidden levels, patterns, trends and unusual activity. The Florida Institute supports seed and early-stage companies to drive innovation-based economic development across the state and helps establish Florida as one of the most innovative states in the USA.
The past few years have seen a clear trend for people to actively make their own investment decisions rather than entrusting their finances to traditional financial institutions. This trend has accelerated exponentially over the past few months. With proprietary distributable deep market data, an accommodating platform infrastructure, artificial intelligence and exploration algorithms, vigtec.io delivers trends, patterns, actionable information and previously unavailable insights directly to the web or mobile device of a user with the aim of managing his investment process and strengthening their trust in participation in global markets.
“At some point in the last few years we thought we might have to leave Florida to find fintech-focused venture partners and specialized team members who will contribute to the growth of our company. We have been fortunate to be introduced to the Florida Institute and Florida Funders, and they have had an incredible impact on our history, not just in terms of capital. We look forward to taking vigtec.io to the next level with your support and to being a dynamic part of the now rapidly growing tech community here in Florida“, Says Jonathan Gibbons, founder and CEO of vigtec.io.
“The democratization of commerce has created a flurry of unstructured and unbridled demand, while current trading platforms focus primarily on transactions, often with little to no analysis for the user,” said Rafael Lohner, Florida Institute, Executive Director. “vigtec.io aims to fill that void by providing users with a next-generation investment platform with an enhanced interactive, exploratory, and discovery-driven user experience.”
