Home-Based Business

Reasons to Work from Home

There are many reasons why people choose to start a business from home. Working from home can provide extra money to support your primary income, keep family members close at hand to care for loved ones, or provide a cost effective alternative for getting your business idea off the ground. 

Benefits of Working from Home

There is no doubt that home businesses offer many economic, environmental, and social benefits to the communities in which they are based. Home-based business is an integral component of early stage startups for innovators who begin with ideas that lead to prototypes in their garage or office or barn. 

The incubation of ideas—ideation, is the vital first step, and the County can play a role in nurturing the process. Red Deer County aims to support businesses at every stage of development.
