Indiana is one of the greatest agricultural centers in not only America, but the world. In part because of its largely rural population, Indiana centralized many licenses and regulatory functions at the state level. Entrepreneurs can expect to get most of their licenses and permits through various state agencies and enjoy relatively little regulation at the local level.
In Indiana, governments at all levels – federal, state, county and city – need supplies and services. Governments do a significant amount of business with the private sector and can be fantastic clients and customers to businesses in many industries. Any business can apply to do business with any governmental body through a vendor registration process.
