The brand-new BusinessUSA mobile application consolidates a wide-ranging amount of business information and resources from across the US federal government, whether you’re a potential entrepreneur interested in launching a startup, or you’re the CEO of an existing small business needing help growing that enterprise or with specific issues like healthcare.
Those tools are created to help small businesses as well as more established businesses navigate regulatory hurdles and gain revenue in an increasingly competitive global economy.
The mobile app is based on the desktop version of the Business.USA.gov (also known as: Business USA or BusinessUSA.gov) business portal, both of which are created and managed by BusinessUSA, a federal agency managed jointly by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Small Business Administration.
