It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to bring an innovative product or service to market, or just starting out in your business venture, you will find plenty of information and resources. It is important to know the different types of businesses and how they are structured so that you can be successful. One type of business that’s very common is the individual business, which ranges from sole proprietorships to sole-owner LLCs. They are not registered with the federal or state government but may need certain licenses and permits depending on the type of business.
