Florida Department of Economic Opportunity

Florida welcomes your business and has made significant strides over the past few years to make the Sunshine State as business friendly as possible. Under the leadership of Gov. Rick Scott, we’ve combined our community, workforce and economic development entities under one roof, now known as the Department of Economic Opportunity.

DEO works alongside Enterprise Florida and Workforce Florida to provide access to the information and world-class service that employers need when making decisions on the future of their businesses. It’s our goal for Florida to be the world’s choice for business and industry, and to increase the state’s global competitiveness as a destination for business, capital, talent, innovation and entrepreneurship.

So, whether you are launching a brand new business, expanding an existing one or relocating operations from another state, Florida has the business-friendly climate, resources and workforce you need to be successful.

The Department of Economic Opportunity’s mission is to promote economic prosperity through successful workforce, community and economic development strategies
