WBEC SOUTH STATE RESOURCES

As part of our ongoing efforts to connect WBEs with lucrative opportunities, WBEC South works with dozens of Strategic Partner Organizations to enhance and expand our resources and opportunities for WBEs.

ALABAMA

Alabama is not only a great place to build, nurture and innovate. It’s a wonderful place to live. To experience all the flavor, graciousness, beauty and promise a land can deliver. As many global brands, homegrown startups and Fortune 500 companies have discovered, it’s a place where the aim is not just to grow, prosper and succeed.  But even better than that… to win.

FLORIDA PANHANDLE

WBEC South supports Florida’s vibrant and growing Northwest Region by providing leadership and vision to advance economic development impacting the state’s 67 counties, 400+ cities, 24 workforce regions, 28 colleges, 12 universities, as well as utilities, ports, airports, and industrial authorities.

TENNESSEE

Great brands deserve the great state of Tennessee. We believe in high expectations, low debt and a pro-business regulatory environment. Tennessee is proud to be a right-to-work state with no personal income tax on wages. Our state and local tax burdens are among the lowest in the country, and our state budget operates with a healthy surplus rather than deficit.
