Grow It Yourself Kit

What is the GIY Kit?

The Grow-It-Yourself Kit is a tool for new business development that was originally proposed in the Blue Ribbon Report, as a response to "the fear of not knowing all the steps." The GIY Kit, which is currently in its prototype phase, serves as a step-by step-guide to opening a business in Gainesville. 

In addition to the step-by-step guide the kit contains an assortment of organizing tools that a new business owner will find helpful along the journey of opening a new business. Finally, each GIY Kit is customized for each individual business owner and comes with a contact from the Department of Doing to serve as empathetic and friendly guide if questions arise.
