Covington County is Advantageous for Industry
Remote Worker/Tech Entrepreneur
If you can work from anywhere, why not work from beautiful southeast Alabama? In 2018, five million U.S. employees, or 3.6 percent of the total workforce, worked remotely. In 2020, COVID-19 caused a seismic shift towards remote work. During the first few months of the pandemic, anyone who could work remotely did — nearly 50% of the working population. Remote work functioned so well for some companies they decided to make the shift and become remote companies permanently.
First and foremost, Covington County has what every remote worker needs: reliable internet with fiber optic options. Even better, the County is performing upgrades. Connectivity, affordability, and an enviable quality of life mean Covington County is ideal as a home base for remote workers.
For entrepreneurs with a feasible idea, a business plan, but lacking capital, CCEDC offers application to the business incubator at the Covington County Business Development Center. Accepted entrepreneurs have access to advice, equipment, temporary premises and facilities, and meeting spaces.
