How to Use the Resources Page

Starting a business in the United States can be an overwhelming prospect for immigrant entrepreneurs. There’s simply so much to learn about state and federal regulations, plus learning how to get your new business funded, the process of incorporation, and the differences in culture between America and one’s country of origin. However, there are a lot of resources to help business startups, if you know where to find them. That’s why we created the Resources page — a one-stop shopping of critical resources, available by state.  So, thinking of starting a business in New York City, Dallas Texas or Atlanta Georgia? Select the state from the drop-down menu below, and get started today!
