Loudoun County has a wide array of services and resources available to assist business owners and those individuals who are starting their own businesses. To help guide people through the process of starting a business or expanding their business, the county has created the Business Assistance Team (BAT). The cross-departmental team is made up of personnel who specialize in a particular area of the process, such as permitting, licensing, mapping, zoning - and more.
Members of BAT participate in cross-departmental training to help provide a seamless and coordinated experience for business customers, regardless of which department the customer contacts first. BAT training emphasizes coordination, follow-through and accountability to the customer. The BAT also is partnering with other organizations, such as the Town of Leesburg's Department of Economic Development and the Loudoun Small Business Development Center to explain the initiatives currently under way and to help advise the public where they can get answers to their business-related questions.
The links below and to the left will provide you with more information on how the Business Assistance Team can help you start or expand your business in Loudoun County.
