Helping Businesses Find Success

| 10/24/2018

Florida’s economy continues to expand and diversify thanks to our state’s low taxes and common sense regulation championed by Gov. Rick Scott and the state legislature. Those policies, coupled with Florida’s highly-skilled workforce, expansive infrastructure and global access, mean business leaders find everything they need to exceed expectations in the Sunshine State.

Workforce: Florida’s diverse and talented workforce of more than 10 million helps businesses meet customer demands and stay on the cutting edge of innovation. For the second consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report ranked Florida the No. 1 state for higher education, ensuring the state’s talent pipeline will continue delivering a strong workforce.

Infrastructure: The state’s expansive, multimodal infrastructure continues to grow thanks to billions in funding from Governor Scott and the Legislature. Florida’s airports, deepwater seaports, rail and highway systems support both the state’s 21 million-plus residents and more than 115 million annual visitors.

Global Access: Long known as the gateway to business in Latin America and the Caribbean, Florida’s global reach continues to grow. Increased investment and trade opportunities with Europe, Africa and Asia mean more customers for Florida companies.

Florida’s reputation as a business friendly state and an ideal location for companies and their workforces continues to grow. More than ever, executives and site selection professionals across the nation are looking to Florida as their next location and expansion opportunity.

Enterprise Florida is committed to working with you to better meet your business expansion and location needs while helping you find the resources to be positioned for great success. Consider Florida … you’ll be glad you did!
