Local Business Local Jobs

The Beacon Council’s Local Business Local Jobs program focuses on business retention and expansion by visiting local companies to assess and address their needs, and to support the creation of new jobs in our community.

The goal of the program is to stimulate local business investment and employment by:

  • Enhancing Miami-Dade County’s image as a global business center
  • Identifying and eliminating obstacles to employment growth
  • Communicating Beacon Council services
  • Recognizing local businesses’ economic contributions
  • Increasing employment

Since the 2001 launch of the program, The Beacon Council has completed over 1,700 visitations of local businesses, providing information on state and local incentives, permitting assistance, procurement of financing, labor training, networking opportunities and other services. The results speak for themselves:

More than 135 Miami-Dade County businesses completed expansion and retention projects with The Beacon Council

  • 15,000-plus direct and indirect jobs created
  • More than 5,600 existing jobs retained 
  • Over 6.4 million square feet of space utilized
  • More than $1.2 billion in new capital investment
