Small Business in Sarasota County
Good for Jobs, Great for Business

Small businesses are vital to Sarasota County. They're the economic engine that creates jobs, supports families, preserves commercial areas and makes our community a viable place to work, live and play.
Small business owners also depend on other small businesses. They provide a network of experience and business contacts, business-to-business sales and a stable commercial core that's vital for economic success.
And small businesses are essential to the overall economic health of our community. They help diversify the county's economic base through a broad base of employment. That diversity helps protect jobs and the county's economy during downturns.
You can learn about the numerous services and resources Sarasota County offers to help businesses get started, relocate and expand.
