Suffolk was been selected as a VA Department of Housing and Community Development "2019 Community". The Downtown Suffolk Community Business Launch is a series of educational workshops designed to help entrepreneurs make the leap from having a business idea to a real brick and mortar establishment, right in Downtown Suffolk. The workshops culminate in a business competition with opportunity for cash prizes, access to corporate resources and assistance with opening your retail storefront.
