As part of an ongoing effort to provide more online tools to businesses, the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) has announced the launch of the California Business Portal, a one-stop-shop website for business owners looking for information and assistance.
“The California Business Portal is a response to the needs of the business community and their request for better on-line tools,” said GO-Biz Chief Deputy Director Panorea Avdis. “California business owners now have a resource to make it easier to do business in the state and GO-Biz will continually update the portal to ensure it keeps up with the demands of business owners and entrepreneurs.”
The California Business Portal provides information to business owners on starting a new business, permits and licenses, incentives, local resources and more. The business portal is designed to be mobile friendly and can be accessed on iOS and Android devices.
Key features include:
- Quick Start Guides: Short guides that contain the essential information for starting, and growing specific types of businesses in the state of California.
- California Business Navigator: Not sure where to start? The Business Navigator provides custom information for your business including permits, licenses and incentives.
- Service Desk: Get answers to commonly asked questions with the California Business Portal Service Desk. If the information for your situation is not here yet, submit your question and GO-Biz will provide a customized answer.
