Starting a Business
If you are interested in starting a business in Monmouth, there are no-cost resources available to help you get started. Some businesses require specialized permits (but not all), though all businesses will require at least a Social Security Number (SSN) or an Employer Identification Number (EIN).
You can start by contacting the City’s economic development department:
Director of Community and Economic Development
The local Small Business Development Center also provides in-depth information and guidance at no cost to you. They will even come to Monmouth to meet with you.
