Support Available for Small Business Owners

Are you a small business owner or entrepreneur looking for support? To support small businesses in the City of Vadnais Heights, we’ve partnered with Ramsey County and the Metropolitan Consortium of Community Developers (MCCD) to launch an Open to Business program for Little Canada businesses.

All current business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs intending to establish, purchase or improve a business within the county are eligible to participate. 

Services available include:

  • Business plan development.
  • Feasibility analysis.
  • Cash flow and financing projections.
  • Marketing planning and material preparation.
  • City and state licensing and regulatory assistance.
  • Loan packaging and other assistance in obtaining financing.
