Entrepreneurs at Home: Cottage Food & Home-Based Childcare
Can an expansion in licensing benefit micro-business entrepreneurs and reduce barriers traditionally associated with occupational licensing? Our team works to find the answer to this question through case studies of home-based businesses and daycare centers in California. We collect license and inspection data from counties as well as conduct interviews with small business owners. Based on our findings, we propose ways government policies can better support business owners, particularly historically marginalized entrepreneurs.
