IMBIZ is a non-profit organization that supports the successful development of entrepreneurs, small businesses, and start up businesses. IMBIZ provides hands on support to facilitate the growth and development of businesses in rural areas, primarily in the Immokalee Community. Immokalee like most other rural areas in the Southwest Florida region is an agriculture community that is being affected by the decline in agriculture. As agriculture decreases, this creates a significant increase in unemployment unless the people are retrained for something else, such as entrepreneurship.

For a long time, Immokalee has been fortunate to have generous friends who give to assure that our children receive the education needed to thrive. Guadalupe Center provides infant to college support and The Immokalee Foundation provides middle school to college support. Imbiz will complete the circle by empowering and providing support to the parents through entrepreneurial education.
