Home to several Fortune 500 companies, a talented workforce, miles of sandy beaches, The PLAYERS Championship, and popular tourist destinations such as St. Augustine and Amelia Island, Northeast Florida is the perfect place for business to grow.
Jacksonville serves as the vibrant hub of the Northeast Florida region, which includes Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam, and St. Johns counties. A flourishing international trade center and global transportation hub, Jacksonville is a young dynamic city offering an unbeatable location, a pro-business environment, and an abundant, culturally diverse, and skilled labor force.
