Thirty-sixth edition covers major issues faced by people who start businesses

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.
