Business Matchmaking

Miami-Dade County has an in-house database that contains local Miami-Dade County businesses, professional associations and trade offices. The database focuses on merchandise trade companies in Miami-Dade County that trade internationally, and is available upon request to third party organizations, incoming missions and to area businesses that are involved in international trade.

The database program allows crucial links to be made between those local and foreign businesses and trade development offices from around the world, thus increasing the opportunities for trade. The information provided can be tailored to fulfill the needs of businesses, trade offices, and consulates requesting information.

We have also partnered with Enterprise Florida, the State of Florida's economic development agency, to offer free of charge the Florida Export Directory. This new site is a way for Florida exporters to gain international market exposure free of charge through a searchable, web-based directory.
