New business growth continues

For the Miami Valley Today

COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose announced another strong month for new business filings for the month of February with 14,488 new businesses created.

“Each of the 14,488 new businesses is a story of grit and determination, even in the face of record-setting inflation,” said LaRose. “While the hurdles facing entrepreneurs are being ignored in Washington, we hear them loud and clear — and we will continue to fight to ensure Ohio job creators are not stifled by bureaucracy, but supported through every step of their journey.”

Ohio helped tear down barriers to business creation recently by eliminating unnecessary bureaucratic hurdles for entrepreneurs, according to a press release from the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office. Streamlining certifications for minority, women, and veteran-owned businesses and a modernizing how limited liability companies (LLCs) are incorporated in Ohio are just the latest reforms toward positioning Ohio as the destination state for entrepreneurship and job creation.

Establishing a new business in Ohio has become increasingly quick, easy, and inexpensive through the Ohio Secretary of State’s Ohio Business Central website, OhioBusinessCentral.gov. Ohio’s business-friendly climate and the array of resources available to Ohio entrepreneurs helped Ohio maintain its economic momentum year after year.
