All new businesses are special, but some require special permits and licenses. The lists are long for both. We've covered some of them here but invite you to call (317) 232-6531 for further information.

While certifications may seem burdensome, they really are designed to give your business a leg up. Besides professional certifications, the state of Indiana is committed to creating a level playing field for all populations. If you run a minority, women or veteran business enterprise, you can seek certification to benefit from subcontracting opportunities on state contracts. In addition, your business might qualify for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise certification.
