BusinessSource Center to open in South LA

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced today that six BusinessSource Centers will be reopening across Los Angeles, including a location in South Los Angeles.

The centers are designed to offer real-world expertise, training and support for small businesses in their vicinity, according to a press release from the mayor’s office.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy,” Villaraigosa said. “We are reopening the BusinessSource Centers to give entrepreneurs the tools they need to create jobs and grow their businesses.”

The South Los Angeles BusinessSource Center, which is run by the Vermont Slauson Economic Development Corporation on Slauson Avenue, will offer services from helping businesses navigate city permits and regulations to marketing and financial management workshops.

Other locations include East Los Angeles, Central/West Los Angeles, the Harbor area and two locations in the Valley.

The centers are part of the mayor’s campaign to create jobs that includes his proposals for improving LAX and the Port of Los Angeles as well as creating a new transportation network in the city.
