The City of St. Louis is working to make it easier to open, expand, and/or move businesses in the City of St. Louis. The Business Assistance Center (BAC) is an important resource available to businesses of any size and should be the first stop when deciding to open, expand, or move businesses in the City of St. Louis.
The City of St. Louis is full of entrepreneurs – and we want to ensure that they utilize their talents right here in the City of St. Louis. The Business Assistance Center exists to do much of the legwork for business owners – and instead of putting business owners through governmental hoops, the BAC representatives help to streamline the process.
“I’m proud of the Business Assistance Center,” said Mayor Slay. “It is one of my top goals to make it easier for people to start, expand, or move businesses into the City. Through the BAC, we make it easier for people to do business in the City – and more businesses in the City creates more jobs for City residents and, ultimately, a better quality of life.”
To contact the Business Assistance Center, please call (314) 622-4120 or visit http://stlouis-mo.gov/government/departments/sldc/economic-development/business-services/Business-Assistance-Center.cfm for more information.
