Forming a Small Business

Each year, thousands of Americans catch the entrepreneurial spirit, launching small businesses to sell their products or services. The City of Auburn, Office of Economic Development, knows that this is a big step for you and your family and we are available as a helpful resource to you.

The following checklist has been compiled by us as a guideline to assist business entrepreneurs who are considering the pursuit of a small business enterprise. This document is intended to be a guideline only; and in no way is it represented to be a comprehensive list of actions. At best, this document should be used in conjunction with extensive self-help research. Clients customers of the City are also advised to seek the professional assistance of qualified business consultants as they deem necessary.
