ST. PAUL
– The 2018 edition of “A Guide to Starting a Business in Minnesota” is now available from the Small Business Assistance Office at the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED).

This popular guide, which is now in its 36th edition and free of charge, provides a concise summary of the major issues faced by anyone starting a business in Minnesota.

“Small businesses employ just over half of the private-sector workforce and create nearly two-thirds of the nation’s jobs,” said DEED Commissioner Shawntera Hardy. “While starting a business is no easy task, this guide gives entrepreneurs the information they need to start a successful business in Minnesota.”

The 2018 edition of the guide contains in-depth information that is crucial to business success, yet too costly for many small-business owners to obtain on their own. It covers a wide variety of topics, from basic process questions to far more complex regulatory, financial, managerial and business-structure questions.

The guide also includes information on an array of programs and initiatives that support small business growth and help entrepreneurs increase opportunities for success.

Free copies of “A Guide to Starting a Business in Minnesota” can be obtained in hard copy or on CD-ROM from the Small Business Assistance Office, First National Bank Building, 332 Minnesota St., Suite E-200, St. Paul, MN 55101-1351. Phone 651-259-7476 or 1-800 310-8323. The guide can also be found on the DEED website.

DEED is the state’s principal economic development agency, promoting business recruitment, expansion and retention, workforce development, international trade and community development. For more details about the agency and its services, visit the DEED website or follow DEED on Twitter.
