Business Development Resources

A major component of the City of Fort Worth Economic Development Department is to identify resources and growth opportunities for small businesses and entrepreneurs. The Office of Small Business and Office of Business Diversity are divisions of the City of Fort Worth Economic Development department and help build upon that mission.

Office of Small Business

The Office of Small Business provides the framework to cultivate the next generation of entrepreneurs, create a robust pipeline of micro-enterprises and provide growth opportunities for established small businesses.

Office of Business Diversity

The Office of Business Diversity seeks to ensure that qualifying businesses receive the maximum possible opportunity in the city's procurement activities — directly or indirectly — through a City Council approved ordinance.
