Entrepreneurs have always been an important part of Summit County. People undertaking business ventures, taking advantage of the region's land features, natural resource endowments or placement on travel routes were the County's first residents. 

Despite the millions of influences that affect the County's growth and diversification, nothing would happen if it weren't for individuals making entrepreneurial decisions to hire, invest or innovate.

Summit County is dedicated to helping the regions entrepreneurs make informed decisions about starting and growing their businesses. 

If you would like to discuss starting a new business in the Summit County, please call 435-336-3221 or email Jeffrey B. Jones, AICP to set up an appointment.
