World of Work

Innovation Comes to Stay

How we do business

Welcome to Fort Myers, where innovation comes to stay! 

The world of work is changing. It used to be when you had your head in the clouds you were a dreamer.  Software technology is changing the way we do business.  Software that allows you to manage information, determine how to make decisions based on analysis software, store financial information, interact with clients, back up and protect our information, and monitor our network traffic, gives us many reasons to partner with an expert in the field. 

Creating content, determining the best operating system, and creating a tech hub that supports our local economy is how we do business now and stay ahead of the changes for the future.   The City of Fort Myers is growing and you talent and skills are an important factor in our growth.

The Florida Workforce Education Initiative is a step in the right direction.  Boot Camps, Hack-a-Thons and cohorts working toward the next great idea is becoming more and more the fabric of the City of Fort Myers.  Innovation at play is easy to do when you are in the City of Fort Myers.

The Cape Coral-Fort Myers metro area has seen sustained growth in both jobs and wages.

Welcome Remote Workers!

Collaboration is an intrinsic part of the fabric of the business community.  The world of work has changed and has led to more and more people moving to the Fort Myers area and in some cases, keeping their job from another location.  Remote workers may eventually bring their employers to Fort Myers as well.  Growth attracts more growth, and we have the space to accommodate it and forward thinking enough to invite an innovation mindset to the area. 

For many, it is a chance to avoid the high costs and challenging regulatory environments in other places. Commercial and residential real estate combined with our continued population growth is attractive to the corporate world. The tax burden is less and makes Florida business and workforce friendly and an ideal location to work.  

Creating new markets and new opportunities in Fort Myers and leveraging technology is enhanced with the best tax climate in the Southeast. Reliability with predictive, smart grid to help prevent outages makes staying in business even better.

We are seeing development that includes mixed-use spaces, such as West End at City Walk. 5,000 square feet of office/commercial space with access to the amenities of the building. There is also room for future development on McGregor Boulevard.  A highly sought-after location with easy access to Downtown Fort Myers.  You can watch the development video here.  Apartments at this location are affordable and available beginning the Summer of 2021. 

Henry Ford and Thomas Edison Winter Estates are just a couple blocks away and we are sure some of their greatest ideas came on the front porch enjoying the Florida sunshine. Collaboration and working from home has a rich history in Fort Myers.
