The Economic Development Council of Collier County (EDC) announced in September an initiative to support entrepreneurs in Collier County, Economic Gardening. This program marks the "Era of the Entrepreneur" and is designed to provide technical assistance to CEOs of 2nd Stage growth companies, those companies that employ between 10 and 99 employees. The Collier County program is supported by the Florida Economic Gardening Institute, located in Orlando, Florida and the Edward Lowe Foundation, located in Cassopolis, Michigan. The Florida Economic Gardening Institute was created as a result of a pilot program funded earlier this year through the Florida Legislature.
