We provide capital, incentives and economic tools to assist new and existing businesses. The goal is to create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs and innovators that drive the local economy.
Interior and exterior design consultants, as well as a business consultant, are made available free of charge. New or existing businesses in the district can request a professional consult through Main Street Paris at any time. Consultants will design a business from the ground up, recommend property improvements, offer general business advice, or even choose paint colors. All you have to do is ask!
