4 Questions to Consider Before Launching Your Business
- How Do I Find and Lease a Business Location?
Leasing commercial office space can be one of the largest expenses made by new and expanding businesses. Consider what you need, gather facts, and don’t be afraid to negotiate.
- Should I Buy or Lease Business Equipment?
When determining whether to buy or lease equipment, consider costs, restrictions, and legal requirements. Use our “Equipment Lease vs. Buy” calculator to help make your decision an easier one.
- How Can I Sell to the Government?
Have you thought about contracting with the government? It can open the door to many opportunities and help grow your business. But first, you’ll need to register.
- Where Can I Find Inexpensive Business Supplies?
Another way you can use the government to help you set up shop is by purchasing government surplus equipment. From computers, to delivery vehicles, to gently used office items, just about anything you can think of that your business might need is sold by the government at or below cost, or fair market value.
