Small Business

The City of Scottsdale’s Economic Development Department is poised to meet the needs of the small business community by helping clients understand the entire process from start to finish. This is accomplished through early dialogue and interaction with staff whose main focus is working with new and existing Scottsdale Small Businesses.

Every small business is unique, so it is recommended that you discuss your project with Economic Development first to help navigate you through many city processes’. There are many advantages to contacting our Small Business professionals in order to ensure your business not only opens, but succeeds and expands in Scottsdale. Some of the advantages include:

  • Single point of contact
  • Tailored project schedule
  • Expedited timeline of services
