Start a Business

By the time you’re ready to launch your business, your research, marketing analysis, and a thorough business plan should be completed. The business must now comply with Federal, State and local registration and licensing.

Online processes are offered by the Federal and State agencies responsible for overseeing these operations. Additional assistance can always be obtained from the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) or Hagerstown local chapter of SCORE.

AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, DIRECTV and Antietam Cable Television have Points of Presence within the county. Washington County is well served and several options are available for broadband services. Resources to help your household find the right internet service plan include InternetProviders.com. Cellular telephone services are available through private local and regional vendors.
