Enterprise Florida


As Florida’s Secretary of Commerce and President and CEO of Enterprise Florida, I have the good fortune of talking with small business owners across our state. Their drive and determination are an integral part of what makes Florida the best state in the nation for business, and I am committed to supporting their efforts.

Enterprise Florida will continue to assist small businesses through our many programs and services, and through important partnerships with statewide organizations. Working together, we will build on the strong foundation of more than 2 million small businesses that already call Florida home.
