New Launch VB Website Connects Small Businesses with Business Resources

​Council Member Sabrina Wooten and the Virginia Beach Department of Economic Development are expanding efforts to reach more small businesses via Launch VB, a business initiative and new online resource for those who want to start a business or expand an existing business.

"With Virginia Beach being ranked 24th among 'The 75 Best American Cities to Start a Business,' it proves we have the knowledge and experts to help those who want to build on their dream of owning a business," said Wooten. "The resources we offer through our Economic Development department will help aspiring business owners establish companies that will contribute greatly to our city and its economic base."

From writing a business plan and obtaining licenses, to finding new markets and incentives – Launch VB can help. The site consolidates critical information such as financial and hiring advice, location ideas, and other resources to help establish their business.

"Realizing the vision of establishing a business can be a challenge, but we have the means to help small and minority-owned businesses move their plans from the desktop to reality," said Wooten. "There are many opportunities for new and existing businesses in Virginia Beach. We want to help entrepreneurs make the most of them."
