Startup Assistance Resources

When you’re starting a business in Massachusetts, there are a lot of things for you to consider.

From forming a Massachusetts LLC (or Corporation) to figuring out if your business needs to find a qualified Registered Agent, it can get a little overwhelming.

It makes sense to take advantage of the resources available to help you start a business. That said, here are the 4 Massachusetts startup assistance resources I recommend you look into.


1) Massachusetts Business Counseling

The Massachusetts SBDC offers excellent 1-on-1 counseling, advice, and training programs to help you become a successful small business owner. Take advantage of them!

2) Mentoring and Counseling from Your Local SCORE

SCORE is Non-Profit organization that provides counseling, workshops, and mentoring for small business owners in the United States. There are local SCORE chapters all across the state to help your small business succeed, free of charge. Do a quick ‘Google’ search to find one near you.

3) State Licensing, Permits, & Other Regulation Assistance

Finding the Massachusetts licensing and regulation obligations can feel a bit like pulling teeth. The MPRO (Massachusetts Permit Regulatory Office) has excellent support for answering any questions you might have.

4) Online Learning Resources from the SBA (the Small Business Administration’s website) has a great number of free resources for starting and growing a business in the United States. From online courses to quick tips, it’s a great resource worth checking out!

At the end of the day, starting a new business is difficult. But if you take advantage of the great resources at your disposal, you’ll be miles ahead of the rest!
