Small Business Support for You

Small Business Support for YouSmall Business Support for YouStarting a new business for the first time can be daunting. There are so many things to learn which have nothing to do with the product or service you will be selling. Luckily, we have thought of all of the potential questions you may have, and compiled a list of resources to help you relax a bit when it comes to organizing your new business.

The AADL Small Business and Entrepreneur Resources page has links for help with every step of the way in setting up a small business. There are resources for finding a mentor, and a list of organizations that can help you get started. You will find information on the difference between a for-profit verses a non-profit business model, and links to check the availability of potential business names in Washtenaw County.

If your business includes packaging food, we have a link to the MSU Product Center who specializes in working with small businesses and helping them package their products. Many of their clients have gone on to win awards for their innovative packaging.

Also included is a list of U.S. government important links about tax laws and IRS information.

Finally, once you get all of the preliminary groundwork out of the way and well on your way to getting your business off the ground, visit our site again. Once you start to meet with clients, or you need to hold meetings, don't forget AADL has rooms available for rent. If you need an ongoing space, in our resource list, we also have local options for shared office spaces.
