In our increasingly high tech world, IT and Software businesses abound. Many tech wizards are interested to start their own businesses because overhead can be very low, while profits can be quite high. Like all businesses, tech operations must hold required state and local licenses. In some cities, like Chicago and New York, IT repair businesses need special regulatory permits.
Lexington, Kentucky has long been known as the capitol of thoroughbred horse breeding. The Lexington area's long history of "gentleman farming" led to a strong livestock industry. Later, the city became home to the University of Kentucky which remains the city's largest employer. Entrepreneurs looking to join the Lexington economy will find relatively simple and few licenses from the local city-county combined government. Instead, more licensing is done at the state level.
