The Naples Accelerator's global soft-landing program helps international firms — and domestic companies headquartered outside the region — quickly adapt and connect to the Southwest Florida business community and the US.
Global entrepreneurs seek business opportunities in the U.S. due to its vast markets, economic opportunities, investment dollars and firmly established intellectual property protection laws. The Naples Accelerator, a public private partnership between the Collier County Office of Business & Economic Development and non-profit Economic Incubators Inc., is a certified soft-landing space that offers cost-effective market entry for small to midsized, high-growth companies planning to expand their marketing reach in the U.S. We provide a dynamic business environment of contemporary offices, shared office spaces, reserved modern work cubicles, sit-stand desks, conference rooms, event areas, a kitchen and dining space and common areas.
The Naples Accelerator is Southwest Florida's top business accelerator. Since its opening in late 2014, it's helped 88 companies that have garnered more than $12.2 million in venture investment. We're also a member of the International Business Incubator Association, InBIA.
Our team ensures that international businesses can easily expand to the U.S. and Naples, Florida, where we will provide an accelerated introduction to local and national business practices, regulations and culture. Our soft-landing program can accelerate a foreign company's learning process, help it make contacts here more quickly and efficiently and provide access to the resources needed to meet business goals
