PDFs You Can Use Now

There is the Smart Start Guide, a small business and entrepreneur guide with statewide resources; a simplified flowchart on How to Start a Business (register your business in Tennessee); and a blank Business Model canvas. Sometimes you want just to print it out and write on it (go ahead!) or save it to your device for later.


This page is administered by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. If you have questions or need additional information about starting a business in Tennessee, please contact the Small Business Advocate, Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury at smallbusiness.advocate@cot.tn.gov.
