Industry Resource: Small Business Startup Guide

The holiday season is the busiest time of year for local businesses everywhere, which can add extra stress and confusion for entrepreneurs getting ready to finally bring their big ideas to life. After connecting with our business community to discover the most helpful info to launch their local shops, the Economic Development team created the Small Business Startup Guide, a step-by-step guide to navigating the City’s application and permitting process. 


The guide equips local businesses that are just getting started with the information, tools, and resources they’ll need to start their business in the City of Napa: 


“Napa is a hub of local artisans and businesses with amazing product and service offerings, so we’re always really excited to bring new businesses into our community,” said Neal Harrison, Economic Development Manager. “The Small Business Startup Guide is designed to help make it as easy as possible to kick start that process.”


Once a potential future business owner has a solid grasp on the general and common first steps to starting a business, they can turn to the guide to understand the nuances in the process for applications, zoning, and permitting within the City of Napa specifically. The guide also offers information on helpful contacts to help build the business’s presence in the community, like the Economic Development team and local organizations focused on business support and networking. 


As you’re shopping at your favorite local stores this season, stay inspired—your next big idea could shape into a fan-favorite new business in the future! And when you do, the Economic Development team is here to support you.
