City of Boca Raton – Office of Economic Development





Boca. Business. Brief.

On Monday, the Mayor presented our office with a proclamation recognizing the importance of economic development in the City of Boca Raton.  Our office launched four years ago and started as a one person office.  In December 2018, our team grew to two full time staffers.  We’re proud of the work we’re doing and are lucky to serve Boca’s robust corporate community.  As for our four years in business, building the office from the ground up, we didn’t come this far – to come this far.  Stay tuned, there’s more to come.


Our Office created and designed the ad below.  We worked with our community partners to be sure to capture the perfect image.  If you look closely, you’ll see the photograph was taken at the Boca Raton Airport.  We’ve been lucky to secure a spot in an international publication that will allow the City of Boca Raton to reach an audience that may be best suited for corporate relocation and expansion.   We can’t wait to share all the details.

Our team works diligently to share any and all corporate news taking place in the City of Boca Raton.  If you have corporate news to share, reach out.  We would love to hear (and share) it.
