It is important to consider several factors when deciding on the location of your business, including ease of access, proximity to competitors and potential partners, and zoning and signage regulations.
You can use the California Business Portal Mapping Tool to help decide where to locate and to learn about business assistance programs, workforce development organizations, entrepreneurship support, and regulatory boundaries located across the state.
In addition, the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) provides comprehensive confidential site selection services tailored to meet the needs of individual companies and consultants. As a part of this service, GO-Biz will analyze the factors affecting a company’s investment decision including taxes, human resources, training and workforce development, incentives, financing, utilities, permits, and specific real estate opportunities available in the state.
Additionally, GO-Biz serves as a company's liaison to California's regulatory agencies and local governments throughout the state.
If your company is looking to relocate or expand in California, please contact a GO-Biz Site Selection specialist.
