Check out the Hess brewing oddesy blog. just google that and you will get a hit. It's a nano down in san diego and they do a really good job of documenting everything they went through to get up and running.

Start with www.sba.gov (guides and tutorials about how to start and run a business), and then go to www.score.org when you have questions (free business mentoring).

That SBA page would be a good study for anyone interested in knowing more about biz. Would be handy knowledge when the boss is looking for management help.
