The City of Fort Lauderdale had a simple goal – create a powerful online Business Support Center to help elevate the City’s profile as an international business destination and support the success of Fort Lauderdale’s local businesses. The challenge facing the City’s economic development team was how to create the Business Support Center with a tight budget and limited staff resources?
Because every community is unique, Localintel starts all engagements by taking a deep dive into our client’s advantages, challenges and needs. With Fort Lauderdale this process included identifying the purpose of the Business Support Center and selecting the tools that would best meet the needs of its target audience. Following the assessment and selection process, the tools were then developed by Localintel and integrated directly into the City’s new Business Support Center website.
Our award-winning catalog of online economic development tools has helped the City of Fort Lauderdale create a next-generation Business Support Center that:
- Promotes the City’s advantages and opportunities
- Provides site selectors and expanding local businesses with the information they need
- Powers economic development
“Fort Lauderdale’s Business Support Center is an essential resource for expanding local businesses,
startups, real estate developers as well as national and foreign corporations seeking new opportunities.”
