How we became Florida-CEED  

Florida-CEED was created in St. Petersburg, FL, out of the community's strong desire to include cooperative economics in their long-term goals as a city.

Starting with The People's Budget Review, residents began to collect their voices as citizens of St. Petersburg and ask for input on how their city budget would be used. 

Out of this effort and determination the new Deal for St. Pete was born -- and revealed a clear voice asking  for cooperative business development to be a part of the mainstream of South St. Pete. 

Florida Cooperative Empowered Economic Development Corp. (Florida-CEED) formed August 1, 2017, as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization in response to that voice.

Florida-CEED is a cooperative business resource center that provides education, business development, workshops, program development, community outreach, and coalition growth.

Florida-CEED is honored to be housed at Pinellas Technical College (PTC) located in St. Petersburg, FL.

PTC and Florida-CEED are taking the lead in the innovation and development of new ways to apply cooperative business development to the hands-on workforce.
