One need only experience a single tropical storm in Florida's panhandle to realize that Floridians are made of stronger stuff. That sturdiness often translates to the state's business community. The facts and figures from the Inc. 5000 Series: Florida ranking show a thriving business environment, populated at the top end by a massive business products and services industry, whose private enterprises generated $4.7 billion in 2018 revenue. It was trailed closely by the state's health sector, which also clocked in as the fastest-growing industry overall. Combined, ranked companies in the industry drew in $1.8 billion in 2018, up 1,065 percent from 2016.
