So you want to start a Small Business in San Francisco?

Do you have an idea for a small business in San Francisco and have questions? Don't know where to start? Intimidated maybe? We can help.

Starting a small business doesn't have to be scary. The journey can be rich, exciting, and even fun. But, we've got questions!!

What are the first steps to take with your idea?

How do you find the perfect space in the City?

How do you register the business, get it permitted, and opened?

How much does the process cost? How long does it take? Who is here to help?

I (Manny) just went through this process and I found some folks in City extremely helpful so we're bringing them to Manny's to help you on your journey. Owning a small business has been one of the greatest things I've ever done. Join me.

There is no idea too wacky or question too basic. Even if you are just starting to think about it - this can be helpful to you.
