Thinking of starting a small business?

Lowell’s dramatic revitalization has, in large part, been fueled by the drive of entrepreneurs. Today, that spirit continues to thrive in a wide array of both new and established, independently owned restaurants, retailers and service providers that call Lowell home.

The City of Lowell is committed to supporting the growth of small businesses. Our team is here to help you every step of the way, from providing permitting and licensing assistance to connecting you with local lenders who specialize in SBA guaranteed loans.

With annual events like the City’s Small Business Week, Made in Lowell and technical and grant assistance programs like Best Retail Practices, the City sponsors extensive programming and networking opportunities specifically for small business owners. Also be sure to check out Merrimack Valley Small Business Center for additional resources.

Learn about additional Business Resources, including tax incentives and site selection, available through the City of Lowell.
