A CATALYST FOR SMALL BUSINESS SUCCESS ... that is the mission of Metro Broward Economic Development Corporation, a Certified Community Development Financial Instituion (CDFI) and Small Business Success Center located in Lauderhill, (Greater Ft. Lauderdale) FL.


The Entrepreneurial Institute at MetroBroward (The Institute) was formed in collaboration with Broward College and The South Florida Regional Planning Council. The partnership represents a collective response to the repeated requests from prospective and existing entrepreneurs for a one-stop resource that would provide "real world" and "hands on" advice, coaching, technical assistance and education for starting, growing/funding and maintaining a competitive small business.

Broward College (BC) is extending its reach into the community by serving as the point of registration for all certificate programs offered at the Institute. The College's Departments of Continuing Education and Economic Development are contributing their expertise to the Institute.

The South Florida Regional Planning Council (SFRPC) has endorsed small business growth and development as a leading economic development initiative for the South Florida Region. The Council has partnered with The Institute to promote and fund the implementation activities that are aligned with fulfilling the Council's small business development goals.

MetroBroward Economic Development Corporation (MBEDC) will continue to leverage nearly two decades of small business growth success by providing the staff, resources and expertise that is required to address the needs of all visitors to and clients of The Institute.
