    About SilverFlume


    What is SilverFlume?

    SilverFlume is Nevada's one-stop business portal that consolidates the registrations needed to start and run your business. SilverFlume eliminates about 80% of redundant steps by collecting and streamlining business information to partner agencies. SilverFlume simplifies compliance, enabling you to focus on growing your business.

    What's in a Name?

    When SilverFlume launched in 2012, the Nevada Secretary of State wanted to distinguish Nevada's business portal from the vast array of other "portals" on the internet. Seeking a unique term with Nevada roots, the Secretary branded the state's business portal "SilverFlume". Flumes are artificial water channels and were used extensively to carry minerals and timber in a quick and efficient manner in the mines that made Nevada “The Silver State". SilverFlume replicates the fluidity of those waterways by acting as a portal to transfer information. The internet has many "portals," but there is only one "SilverFlume".

    SilverFlume is more than a great name. It is a valuable tool to start and expand businesses that will grow Nevada’s economy… together, in one place.
