Are you looking for business assistance and information, but are not sure where to go? BusinessUSA can help. BusinessUSA is a partnership joining 24 federal agencies along with state and local agencies to bring a comprehensive portfolio of business assistance resources to U.S. businesses and entrepreneurs, from starting up to going global.
Whether it’s learning about government contracting or financing opportunities, researching exporting options or patent protections, or finding business assistance for veterans or minorities, BusinessUSA helps businesses find the right tools, training, events, research, regulations, services, in-person assistance and other resources quickly and easily while helping them take advantage of government programs and services that can help increase their bottom line.
To help users speedily hone in on the most relevant results for their needs, BusinessUSA has developed applications that walk users through a series of questions. For example, the Browse Resources for Veterans app has an extensive number of tools and information aimed specifically at helping veterans start or expand an existing veteran-owned business.
Helping companies grow through exporting is another major focus for BusinessUSA. When you explore the Begin Exporting and Expand Exporting apps, with tools and resources for new to export companies as well as experienced exporters, you will find an extensive amount of information on such topics as:
- A guide to exporting basics
- Identifying your target market
- Licenses and regulations
- Finding trade missions and trade partners
- Market research techniques
BusinessUSA uses technology to make business owners’ and entrepreneurs’ lives easier by providing online training resources that are available on demand.
