'Business with Baton Rouge' program to target small businesses
Mayor Kip Holden says his office will soon roll out details on a new program called "Business with Baton Rouge," which aims to help small businesses land contracts with the city-parish. A certification process for participating businesses will begin in April, Holden says, with workshops on topics such as low-cost marketing strategies, business continuity planning, operational savings and new borrower training, among others, scheduled for inclusion in the Baton Rouge Small Business Development Summit on June 7 at the Baton Rouge River Center. Holden also announced today that Stacie Williams has been hired with a grant from the Small Business Administration to serve as Business Development Coordinator in the mayor's office. Business with Baton Rouge is also being funded with an SBA grant.
