EF Toolkit

Oconee County has been selected to participate in a program that will ultimately lead to our community being labeled an “Entrepreneur Friendly” community.

With this recognition comes an on-line, interactive Entrepreneur Friendly (EF) Toolkit, which will be a strategic planning vehicle used by Oconee County to increase local entrepreneurship and small business development. Many community partnerships are working with the Appalachian Council of Governments to put this program in place.


Business Start-Up Guide

Are you looking for information on how to start or grow a business here in Oconee County?   For specific local information and resources?  You have come to the right place.

As part of the Oconee Economic Alliance Entrepreneur Friendly initiative, a special committee of local business and government stakeholders worked to compile this Business Start-Up Guide.  It not only serves as a nice “101” for aspiring entrepreneurs, but a great resource for existing businesses who wish to take advantage of area resources and grow to the next level.

The Guide is also available in printed form at the Oconee Economic Alliance.
