Economic Development Overview

It’s easy to see why any business should be in West Palm Beach.


The City offers a superlative business climate bolstered with all you need to prosper and succeed, combined with a local pro-business government and a vibrant, supportive business community.

But unlike other centers of business in the United States, West Palm Beach offers a rich, rewarding lifestyle that other Florida cities can only envy.  Basking in sunshine and graced by swaying palms, the City was born as the down-to-earth business center of its aristocratic neighbor, Palm Beach.



And although today part of the largest metropolitan statistical area in the Southeast, its gentle pace, relaxed atmosphere, and fulfilling amenities separate it drastically from others in the area.

Here, the commutes are easy. Costs of business lower. And the weekends filled with celebration. Ranked by Forbes Magazine as the #1 city in Florida for business and careers, West Palm Beach offers all you need for business and life – in the perfect balance – leading to America’s most rewarding and fulfilling place to work and live.
