Grow a Business in Provincetown!

Find Everything You Need Locally


March 21st, 2014

Many call Provincetown “our little slice of paradise”, and like a lot of us who live here, once you’ve come to visit, you’ll want to come back again and again. For more than a few people, once they’ve been here, they simply want to stay. Many of those who choose to follow this desire to its logical conclusion decide the best way to do so is to become one of the town’s many small business owners!

There are two business organizations in town Provincetown Chamber of Commerce and the Provincetown Business Guild both of which offer support and networking opportunities for local businesses.

Some of you may be previous business owners with established insights into what it means to be a seasonal business, while many others may be setting out on a truly new adventure. Whichever category you belong to, the Outer Cape community offers many resources to help new and existing business owners find success.

In Provincetown.com’s Business Services Directory, you will also find listings information for many local businesses that serve your business needs, from freelance administrative and bookkeeping services, to consultants, to printing companies and web designers, to lawyers and insurance brokers.
You can also learn a great deal from the local business owners who are already here, so don't be shy! Introduce yourself to retail and other local entrepreneurs; many of them will be happy to help you out with advice, pitfalls to avoid, best vendors for providing service to your new ventures and more! Another valuable way to gain knowledge about operating a business is to attend some of the local committee and Board of Selectmen meetings in the spring; you will get a good idea of the dynamics, regulations, and nuts-and-bolts of building a business (and a new life) in our lovely Cape-tip locale!

In addition, the Lower Cape Cod Community Development Partnership which offers micro loans, year-round small business programs, including seminars, one-on-one business support, and technology advice. The CDP also presents a weekly radio talk show on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. on WOMR radio (92.1 FM), which focuses on the unique living and working circumstances faced by Outer Cape business owners. They can also provide you with supportive connections within Service Corps of Retired Executives, the Southeastern Economic Development Corp., the Small Business Administration!
