Where Business Happens

ribbon cuttingClermont is part of Central Florida’s growing West Orange community. In addition to the area’s thriving cultural, athletic, and natural amenities, Clermont offers numerous business development opportunities.

For the entrepreneur the University of Central Florida’s Business Incubator Program is located in nearby Apopka. The Incubator nurtures companies during the fragile startup phase and provides a support process that accelerates the development of startup and new companies through a variety of resources and services. The Incubator is an economic development partnership designed to create and sustain jobs in the West Orange region by helping new businesses grow to the point where additional employees are needed to maintain operations and spur growth. More information is available at https://incubator.ucf.edu/.

Additionally, for business professionals interested in expanding their network and accessing programs that increase their knowledge of current business practices, there is the West Orange Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber’s mission is “Facilitating Growth,” which is apparent in its strong programming and commitment to building partnerships and healthy businesses. The Chamber also presents several community events each year. To learn more, visit http://wochamber.com/.

Other chamber connections are available through the South Lake Chamber of Commerce, which promotes commerce and provides a connection between workplace, community, and government. The Chamber’s nearly 800 members are committed to achieving the business success that drives the region’s economy. Learn more at http://www.southlakechamber-fl.com/.

The City of Clermont also is focused on helping and supporting business through its Economic Development program and the Open for Business initiative. Clermont’s Economic Development team can help businesses discover prime real estate sites, determine sewer and water capacity, and plan for public transportation access. Open for Businesses streamlines the permitting process, eliminating the need to visit multiple entities for permits. More information is available at http://www.clermontfl.gov/business/economic-development/ and http://www.openforbusinesscfl.com/about/.

And finally, the Orlando Economic Development Commission (EDC) delivers region-wide perspective with county-focused attention. The EDC attracts, retains, and grows jobs in the region by providing invaluable services and support to companies at no cost. Services range from relocation and expansion assistance to long-term planning. For more information, visit http://www.orlandoedc.com/home.aspx.
