Florida Business Leaders' Summit on Prosperity and Economic Opportunity

Book Your Hotel Today

“There are thousands of business leaders across Florida who get accused of not stepping up to the call on issues like prosperity. It’s been my experience that 100 hundred percent of the time, when business leaders are exposed to the data… 100 percent of the time they step forward and say ‘I didn’t know that, now that I do, what can we do about it?'”

Mark Wilson, President & CEO, Florida Chamber of Commerce

Did you know, more than 3 million Floridians live in poverty? Of those, more than 260,000 are under age 5.

Join business and industry leaders as well as elected officials and community voices us as we analyze a path to prosperity for each of Florida’s zip codes. We will also discuss best practices around the state, how they can be replicated and more. Conversations will also focus around 10 topic areas that the Florida Chamber Foundation’s research shows are part of the conversation of prosperity: Jobs, Education, Housing, Health, Food, Safety, Child care, Justice, Transportation and Agency-Community voice.

Don’t miss out on adding your voice to the conversation- register today!
