ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CONTACTS

One of the unique aspects about Enterprise Florida Inc. (EFI) — the principal economic development organization for the state of Florida — is its ability to forge strong partnerships, not only between business and government, but on state and local levels as well. These partners, all of which are listed here, are important because they provide the basis for achieving better coordination and outcomes for the state’s economic development efforts.

Florida Economic Development Council (FEDC) members representing city and county governments are also listed here. The 500+ total members of FEDC engage business and government leaders in key economic development initiatives that improve local communities and elevate Florida’s global competitiveness. FEDC members are subject matter experts in economic, workforce and community development, with extensive experience in helping companies establish and thrive in Florida.

Regional economic development organizations are listed first; EFI’s regional and county partners are indicated by an asterisk.
