FORT MYERS, FL - The Florida Gulf Coast University Small Business Development Center announced 12 businesses in Southwest Florida were awarded over $20 million in contracts with the federal, state, county and city government for the period between October 2005 and September 2006.

The FGCU SBDC operates a Procurement Technical Assistance Center specifically to help local businesses apply for government grants.
