The Chicago Business Center (CBC) program is an initiative of the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (BACP) to provide business licensing assistance and other resources to small businesses at a local level. North River Commission is one of eight business centers in the City of Chicago that help fill the current gap of local business resources, particularly for entrepreneurs in historically underserved locations and populations.
CBC services include assistance with:
- Licensing & permitting
- Professional and Specialized Services
- Support for new economies
- Assistance recruiting skilled and qualified labor
Who does the Chicago Business Center serve?
EVERYONE! We are focused on the Northwest Side of Chicago and we work with other CBCs, Chambers of Commerce, and organizations around the city. Call us and we will help you or get you in contact with the right organization.
En North River Commission también hablamos español y ayudamos a personas de cualquier lugar de la ciudad que necesiten ayuda en su idioma.
