Services

Enterprise Florida offers grants for Virtual Business Matchmaking to help Florida companies expand overseas and keep their business growing. As market disruptions bring forth new ways of doing business,  the Virtual Business Matchmaking program is one way Enterprise Florida is helping the state’s small and medium-sized companies.

Virtual Business Matchmaking includes virtual introductions via teleconference or videoconference with up to five interested agents, distributors, or partners in various given target markets who have been pre-screened and pre-qualified.

Matchmaker Service Providers

Florida companies have two options to choose from, depending on the market of interest:

  • Enterprise Florida’s international representatives in Europe offer matchmaking through the Export Concierge Service in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.  In each market or region, the office will connect Florida companies with five pre-qualified partners/distributors through teleconference or video-conference.

  • Similar services are offered in additional markets through Enterprise Florida’s partnership with the U.S. Commercial Service and their International Partner Search Plus Virtual Introductions. The U.S. Commercial Service program includes virtual introductions with up to five pre-qualified contacts, with options for additional introductions.
