Thinking of Starting a Small Business?

Tucson offers a tremendous amount of support for starting a small business.  We encourage you to take advantage of this! Pima County Public Library, the City of Tucson, the University of Arizona, Pima Community College’s Small Business Development Center, and many, many other organizations provide the opportunity and resources for you to get started and succeed. Try free workshops, fun social gatherings providing the opportunity to interact with your business peers, and one-on-one mentorships, the support list goes on and on. We will give you our go-to list, along with lots of other information, when you attend our Want to Start Your Own Business workshop.

Starting a business involves lots of time and work, and many rewards.  You provide jobs for the community and unique experiences for the locals and all those tourists who discover and return to Tucson often.  It is easy to feel overwhelmed and alone in the business world, but the community is here to provide assistance.  When new businesses get started and succeed, all Tucson residents' quality of life improves, along with invigorating and rejuvenating Arizona’s economy.

Don’t have a business idea yet, but love the idea of running your own business? Take the first steps by attending the workshops offered by the Pima County Public Libraries, discover books and magazines offered by the library to help you get started, follow Business, Jobs and Nonprofits news on our website, and this blog, and start making those important connections with Tucson’s business community.  See you at the library!
