Entrepreneurs Network

Based on the idea that an interconnected network of entrepreneurs has the ability to improve the talent of those within our community, the City of Fort Myers has been at the forefront of trying new ways to provide services to business owners and developers for the benefit of the public.  

The Southwest Florida Enterprise Center was established in 1988 and is located at 3903 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and currently has over 35 tenants.  Classes are offered and partnerships with various organizations and groups provide educational support for the community.  We have a rich history of striving to improve equity and we continue to improve the work to support local business.

Redevelopment is supported by our Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) which provides tax incentive financing to assist developers.  Some other opportunities are listed below.
