Typically, the Virginia State Corporation Commission will not allow you to form a business with a name that implies association with a VA state entity, or one that implies an illegal purpose for your business.
The Commonwealth of Virginia is one of the most friendly states to start a small business.
It features a strong statewide economy, a highly educated population and great transportation links with Washington, D.C., Maryland, West Virginia and North Carolina. It’s also well-placed internationally, with several good options for traveling outside the US.
In addition to a very strong technology sector, Virginia also enjoys economic growth from businesses in the software, defense and communications sectors.
