Dear New Orleanians,
To the small business community of New Orleans, as your Mayor I stand with you in these unprecedented times.
As we continue to respond to the evolving challenges brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak, the City of New Orleans stands firm as a ready resource to re-build, grow and develop our small business community. In that spirit, the City’s Office of Community and Economic Development, in partnership with Delgado Community College is pleased to announce the re-launch of the BuildNOLA Small Business Training Program.
Our small businesses have been unwavering in their commitment to the City of New Orleans by bringing growth and innovation to the city and stimulating economic development through the creation of employment opportunities for people who may experience unemployment or underemployment.
I am confident that the BuildNOLA program along with our partnership with Delgado and other key local partner agencies, will provide you with well-deserved training and support at whatever stage of business you are in. From start-up, lower middle market or approaching upper middle market stage. We will meet you where you are, and we will deliver on preparing you for and connecting you to opportunities.
Congratulations on taking the important step to focus on the growth and development of your business.
Let’s BuildNOLA together!
City of New Orleans
