    Our Services

    Local Support for New Businesses

    Through our relationship with entities such as the Greater Fort Lauderdale Economic Development Office and the Coral Springs Chamber of Commerce, we coordinate programs to welcome new companies to the Coral Springs business community. From something as simple as a reception with other local CEO’s; to a coordinated press release program; to assisting with attendees and preparations for a ribbon cutting or grand opening celebration. We can assist you in finding local professional advisors, new vendors, and make introductions to key service providers – we pride ourselves on building professional relationships in our community.

    Retention of Existing Businesses

    The Economic Development Office, along with key community leaders, and liaisons visits local businesses within the City’s targeted industries sectors through a volunteer network. This network is focused on helping existing businesses add additional jobs and on keeping them in the City of Coral Springs and Broward County.

    We work directly with Enterprise Florida, Florida’s Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), and Broward County.
