Built on Open Source Content, Code, & Creativity
Built on Open Source Content, Code, & Creativity

Thank You

This site is made possible by building on the work and creativity of the Cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles as well as their technology partners, Tomorrow Partners and CivicActions, whose Business Portal content and code base served as a foundation for Business.NJ.gov. You can find the LA open source code and a history of the project on the Startup in a Day Github Page.


About This Initiative

Business.NJ.gov is being developed by the New Jersey Office of Innovation, Department of State's Business Action Center and the Economic Development Authority with support from Departments and Agencies across the State.

This site and the Governor's Business First Stop initiative are intended to simplify and streamline access to the information, resources, and services that aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners need to start, operate, and grow their business in the Garden State.

We are launching Business.NJ.gov in beta and using real-time user input to iteratively improve the site and services. The site is also being developed with the support and input of business communities throughout the State.


Built as Open Source

Business.NJ.gov is an open source project that is meant to serve as a base for anyone who is looking to create an online resource for their own business community. You can access the source code on GitHub.
