The City of Ferguson offers some direct, one-on-one business assistance, but also has a worthwhile database of St. Louis area organizations that can provide guidance on:

  • Developing business plans
  • Applying for SBA loans
  • Commercial bank loans
  • Employee staffing
  • Site selection location
  • Working with suppliers

We are also here to help with other information related to starting, growing or managing a small, entrepreneurial business venture.  The City of Ferguson works in partnership with many of these regional resources to help foster continued business growth within the city.

When it comes time for permits, our staff can assist you securing the appropriate permits, licenses, tax numbers, etc., by helping you find the right agencies to contact.

For more information regarding your business concept or business needs, please contact us.
