Start Here, Grow Here
Entrepreneurs are an engine of the Collier County economy and we can assist as you accelerate your business. A variety of local programs are available to assist entrepreneurs in strengthening a company’s ability to achieve its growth goals. These include the Immokalee Culinary Accelerator, Tamiami Angel Fund, Small Business Development Center, SCORE Naples and GoodWill's MicroEnterprise Program. Collier EDO can help startups by identifying financial partners, providing industry research, and facilitating introductions to larger businesses and potential customers.
Goodwill’s SWFL MicroEnterprise Institute assists individuals with a business idea in developing a plan to guide their start-up process or strengthen their existing business. Subject matter experts and experienced business coaches work with participants each evening to develop their plan.
