Why Clawson
“Little City with a Big Heart” isn’t just a saying in Clawson, it’s a way of life.  

A community of only 2.2 square miles, Clawson is one of the smallest communities in Oakland County and is ideally situated between I-75 and Woodward Avenue.  A predominately residential community, the small-town atmosphere of Clawson is enhanced by a vibrant downtown, bustling commercial districts and a commitment to providing a high quality of life for all. 

Doing Business
Streamlining and efficiency is key goal for the city and  to help achieve this goal we’ve put together a variety of resoruces for individuals and businesses who are interested in our special community. 

Getting Started

Starting a business can be a complex experience- from crafting a business plan to securing capital to marketing, there is always something to do.  To help Clawson entrepreneurs successfully launch their business the Clawson Business Resource Center (CBRC) was established to provide easy access to business related publications and resources, business counseling and seminars.  The city has also forged a strong partnership with the Oakland County One Stop Shop Business Resource Center to help in all aspects of starting, expanding and strengthening your business venture. 

Identifying the resources you need plays a big part in the success of your business.  Below are  some helpful sites to get you started.
