Ready to Relocate to Tally?

Heidi Tyline King | 2/28/2020

Growing your business in Tallahassee is a terrific idea. A robust business support ecosystem stands ready to assist you.

Whether you’re looking for a place to start a business or want a hometown to raise your family, Tallahassee-Leon County welcomes you.

According to the Tallahassee Board of Realtors, housing is more affordable than in other parts of Florida. From the collaborative world-class magnetic technology and research community to the innovative gov-tech sector, there are plenty of places to make your mark.

“Our success has not happened overnight. It has taken serious investments, not only in our built environment, but in our human capital and social infrastructure,” says Vincent S. Long, Leon County administrator.

Since launching business development activities in magnetic and applied science efforts in 2018, the Tallahassee Office of Economic Vitality (OEV) team has tripled project activity from interested businesses seeking to expand in Tallahassee. In the three years after the first long-term strategic plan for economic development was approved by city and county commissions, the OEV:

• assisted in creating a job market with 800 jobs added since last year, over 4,500 jobs since 2016;

• worked with four companies to create 177 new jobs with a capital investment of $18 million;

• supported local incubators in their assistance of 172 entrepreneurial ventures.

As a result of OEV and partner institutions’ activity, the GDP of Tallahassee MSA grew by over $400 million, year over year.

Don’t wait to learn more — make a call to the Office of Economic Vitality to find out what resources and opportunities await.
