OpenCounter Launches To Help Small Business Development

At the commencement of Tampa Bay Startup Week, The City of St. Petersburg is launching OpenCounter: St Pete, a web-based tool located on the city's website (stpete.org/opencounter). OpenCounter is designed to help entrepreneurs and small business owners understand the specific license, permits and requirements for St Pete. Informed by the City's zoning and land use permits, building and business tax receipt rules, the goal of the site is to help applicants who are about to embark on complex projects with a customized roadmap to achieve their project goals. Customers of OpenCounter can expect a roadmap to the permits, fees and licenses, while collecting the data that the City needs to move the project forward.

By providing this tool, intentionally designed to give entrepreneurs and small business owners looking to invest in our community, the City will provide reliable, targeted feedback to its community of entrepreneurs by providing a clear breakdown of the processes and highlight any potential roadblocks they may face; and give the City a new level of insight into economic trends in their community.

This week in St. Pete
