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.
• Want to start your own transportation company? Clear explanations of trucking and chauffeur business requirements are offered by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
• Do you sell agricultural products? The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services offers marketing assistance.
• The Virginia Department of Social Services has regional offices where entrepreneurs interested in starting child-care or elder-care businesses can receive licensing assistance.
• The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DPRT) provides incentives for Virginia businesses to establish or expand telework programs.
