One of the primary goals of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance is to help companies already located in Broward County succeed and prosper. A key business retention and expansion initiative is BRAVO (Business Retention Assistance and Visitation Outreach). Through this program, representatives of the Alliance, Broward County Office of Economic and Small Business Development and local municipalities and chambers of commerce conduct visits to local businesses in an effort to strengthen the local economy.
In the past year, 175 local companies were visited through the BRAVO program. The visits include discussions of programs available to businesses wanting to expand in Broward and information regarding issues such as workforce development, international trade and access to financing.
