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, graphic design and online sales, or e-commerce are common home-based businesses. People looking for flexible lifestyles or just to work from home can usually set up these businesses easily. While in many cities including Los Angeles and New York, only standard business licensing requirements apply, numerous cities and counties require Home Occupation Permits for home-based businesses.
