North Florida Economic Development Partnership
Business Growth is in Our Nature

Welcome to Welcome to North Florida

The essence of who we are is found in nature. We’ve got over 8,500 square miles of fresh air, blue skies, green forests and rich farmland. It’s all strategically located for easy access to the Southeast U.S. and Florida’s 20 million consumers. Nature provides us with the resources to help companies grow. We’ve got endless timberlands and rich soil. Constant sunshine makes us #2 in solar farm output. Two major interstates intersect to put Class 1 rail, international airports and five seaports within a short drive.
