Oakley Entrepreneur Program

The City of Oakley understands the importance of our small business community.  The growth of Oakley’s small businesses and entrepreneurs is vital to future local jobs, goods, and services.  Oakley is home to over 700 businesses, with over 90% having fewer than 5 employees.  Almost half of these businesses are home-based.  The Oakley Entrepreneur Program is designed to strengthen the small business and entrepreneur community and help them grow and expand in Oakley.
