The Cape Coral EDO hosted its inaugural BizWalk yesterday. During the walk, two teams visited businesses on Pine Island Road north of Chiquita Boulevard.
This new Cape Coral EDO initiative, based on proven best practices from the International Economic Development Council, is designed to help the city and our partners get a pulse on our local businesses.
The EDO team has partnered with the Cape Coral Community Development Department, Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce, CareerSource Southwest Florida and the Florida Small Business Development Center at FGCU. The goal of this initiative is to visit our local businesses on their turf, make them aware of free resources that are available to them, and hear first-hand from business owners and supervisors.
BizWalks will be held the third Wednesday of each month from 9 a.m. to noon. They will concentrate on specific hubs and target industries.
BizWalks are coordinated by EDO Business Recruitment/Retention Specialist Nita Whaley: (239) 574-0443 or nwhaley@capecoral.net.
