Louisiana Small Business Development Center, the state’s largest nonprofit established to assist small businesses, has created a new “one-stop-shop” website for the thousands of Louisiana small businesses LSBDC serves every year.

According to an LSBDC press release, the new website was launched to digitally enhance the small business services offered by LSBDC, which is “the only statewide nationally accredited program that provides business consulting to entrepreneurs at no cost:”

Through a network of 10 centers, the LSBDC provides high quality one-on-one consulting, training and information resources to help new and existing businesses start, grow and succeed. This year alone, the LSBDC served 12,000 small businesses – creating 1,200 new jobs, 182 new businesses, $123 million in capital, and $45 million in new sales.

Visitors to the website can access up-to-date information with ease. Dividing the website into two sections, “I Want to Start a Business” and “I Am a Business Owner” helps entrepreneurs easily identify information they need and want.

The website features a wide range of business topics, such as increasing sales, accessing capital and business planning. For easier navigation, users can find information, download tools and templates and view upcoming training events related to a single business topic all on one page. This one-stop-shop approach provides users with quick access to topics that can help them with every aspect of their business.

The LSBDC website also features a mobile-ready interface, which is accessible via Smartphone.
