The Nevada Department of Business and Industry is committed to helping people start and grow businesses in Nevada. One way they do this is by connecting you with the right business support resources across the state, and they have two free information products to assist in this effort.
The first is the new Nevada Business Support Ecosystem Chart, a one-page visual diagram that outlines Nevada’s ecosystem of business support resources. The Ecosystem Chart offers a high-level orientation to the categories of business resources available in the state.
It highlights federal, state and local government resources, as well as private sector resources. View the chart as is, or download the PDF and click the interactive links while connected to the internet (the names of entities cited in the PDF are linked to their respective websites). It’s available at business.nv.gov.
The second is the Guide to Starting and Growing a Business in Nevada. The Guide is an interactive PDF covering 15 essential topics for those thinking of starting and growing a business in Nevada. Download the Guide and use it while connected to the internet. Navigate the document by clicking topics on the included Road Map.
Among other things, the Guide has a licensing page with a clickable state map to connect people to local and regional business resources. With hundreds of links, the Guide simplifies the process of learning what’s needed and who to talk to. It’s also available at business.nv.gov.
