Immokalee Business Development Center (IMMBIZ)
The IMMBIZ is nothing like other incubators. It is not static, confined to a warehouse or necessarily restricted to any one place or time. Our goal is to be as helpful as possible to new and energetic entrepreneurs. To be truly helpful we have to take our resources to the new business owners and meet them where they need help the most. We have to break down the walls and barriers that tend to confine and restrict entrepreneurial effort and allow the new businesses to flourish on their own terms, in organic ways.
