Baton Rouge, LA (NBC33) — Some small Baton Rouge businesses went back to work today with a few new tips and skills they can use to become more successful.
The Small Business Development Summit welcomed hundreds of small business owners this morning to network and receive one-on-one consulting.
They learned about how and why it's important to work hand-in-hand with the city and state.
Local small business development centers say this summit is a great way to encourage owners to aim high.
"There are some success stories,” stated Will M. Campbell with LA Small Business Development. “A couple of businesses we have worked with at the small business development center have really benefited from doing business with the city."
This small business summit is an annual event hosted by Mayor Kip Holden.
