Every maker needs a little help navigating the start up process. We've got a team of people ready and willing to help. 

We want The Loop to be a hub for makers all across Columbia and Boone County--and that includes making resources available to people regardless of where they are in the startup process. If you are a food-based business, check out CoMo Cooks First Stop for links to apply for everything from business licenses to health department permits. 

If you are a local maker, artisan, food producer, or small manufacturer located in Columbia or Boone County are welcome to create a profile on our online Makers Directory. If you need assistance with this, please contact Rae Adams at [email protected].

Here are some additional recommendations for business coaching, networking, and more.
