The St. Petersburg Area Economic Development Corporation exists because of the support from more than 50 corporations, the City of St. Petersburg and the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce. Our investors understand they are investing in the future of the St. Petersburg community by expanding the business base, increasing the number of well-paying jobs and contributing to the growth of the size and purchasing power of the local market.
Three levels of support allow businesses of all sizes and industries the opportunity to be part of an organization driving major economic development initiatives to ensure the future vitality of St. Petersburg for generations to come. As an investor, company representatives play a role in the strategic direction of the organization. They are given unique access to forums, educational opportunities and networking events with local business leaders that promote and ensure our economic prosperity. EDC Investors receive exclusive access to upcoming project announcements and economic data.
