BusinessUSA: Government Resources for Small Businesses and Entrepreneurs

BusinessUSA: Government Resources for Small Businesses and Entrepreneurs

Too often, interactions with the government are burdensome and frustrating. From seeking out financing opportunities to learning about the latest regulations, business owners spend too much time navigating the federal bureaucracy.

That’s why BusinessUSA was created: to be a centralized, one-stop platform to make it easier for business owners to find and access the services of federal government agencies.

BusinessUSA is the front door to all the government has to offer. A partnership joining 24 federal agencies along with state and local agencies, it provides a comprehensive portfolio of business assistance resources to U.S. businesses, exporters 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, theBrowse 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.

BusinessUSA also gives small business owners access to training, networking and business events, as well as access to expert local advisors where they most need them – in their own communities.
