Virginia’s state agencies don’t just regulate businesses — many offer assistance and training. The state benefits when Virginia businesses succeed. 

A few examples:

• If your business markets to tourists and visitors to Virginia, the Virginia Tourism Corp. has programs to help develop and promote your business. http://www.vatc.org
• Want to start your own transportation company? Clear explanations of trucking and chauffeur business requirements are offered by the Department of Motor Vehicles.  http://www.dmv.virginia.gov/webdoc/commercial/mcs/index.asp
• Do you sell agricultural products? The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services offers marketing assistance. http://www.vdacs.virginia.gov/marketing/index.shtml
• The Virginia Department of Social Services has regional offices where entrepreneurs interested in starting child-care or elder-care businesses can receive licensing assistance. http://www.dss.virginia.gov
