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.
