Raleigh city officials have compiled a Small Business Resource Guide to help local entrepreneurs start their company.

The 28-page resource guide contains everything from information on city business licenses and required permits, to local incubators and co-working spaces. The guide also has information on financial programs in the state and other area resources for entrepreneurs.

The Small Business Resource Guide is part of an initiative by Mayor Nancy McFarlane to assist new and expanding small businesses in the Capital City.

“Small businesses are key to Raleigh's economy,” McFarlane said in a statement. “I know firsthand how challenging starting a new business can be. This guide provides the information small business owners need to help make starting or growing their business a success.”

The Small Business Resource Guide can be downloaded from the City Office of Economic Development’s website here. A limited supply of hard copies of the guide is available by contacting the Raleigh’s Office of Economic Development at 919-996-2707.
