Number of Business Licenses Issued in 2018

We track the number of business licenses issued each year as an indicator of economic activity.  To encourage more individuals to start their own businesses, we partnered with Shelby County Government and EPIcenter to create Memphis SmartStart, a website designed to make it easy for new business owners to navigate the steps of starting a business.
