Welcome to the Gulf Coast Entrepreneur Alliance.


The Gulf Coast Entrepreneur's Alliance is a membership organization dedicated to promoting innovation and entrepreneurial business development along the Florida Gulf Coast. Our partner members are recognized business leaders from all along the Florida Gulf Coast who are joined by educational and public sector institutions and individual members serving as mentors and advisors.

The Alliance builds upon the Northwest Florida Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Assets map  created by the UWF Center for Entrepreneurship and their key partners Gulf Power and FloridaWest EDA and uses many of the concepts presented in the Kauffman Foundation Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Building Playbook.
