Your Feedback Matters

In collaboration with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, in an effort to gather more information on the impact of COVID-19 on our Small Businesses, and as we look to identify more resources to support our Small Business community, we need your feedback. Please fill out this quick survey and feel free to share it as well.   

We need as many businesses as possible to respond. 

Virtual Office Hours and Visits

OESBD is Open for Business! In response to concerns about COVID-19, we now have virtual office hours Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 5PM. 

If you wish to schedule a meeting or technical assistance, you can do so remotely by calling us at 954-357-6400.  The new remote meeting option requires access to Skype or Zoom.
