Small Business and Professional Licensure

We focus on all programs and issues that affect businesses and the people who use them.

We concern ourselves with legislation and policy issues affecting business development, licensing, and regulations. These issues include:

  • growth of small business,
  • entrepreneurship, and
  • the innovation economy.

We work to ensure a fair, equitable, and vibrant market for both businesses and consumers in the City of Boston.
