LAEDC’s business assistance team has been growing as we have hired additional staff to meet the greater demand from small businesses experiencing challenges during the pandemic. Our team is hearing from their one-to-one conversations with owners that the lack of federal relief funding is putting many businesses in dire conditions and increasing uncertainty about surviving as ongoing companies. If you are experiencing that kind of situation, LAEDC wants to hear from you because we are part of your team, dedicated to helping as many businesses as possible with the resources and strategic consulting that is needed, whether it be with access to capital such as grants, cost containment, new marketing and online sales strategies to improve revenue and more. We also want to help businesses avoid layoffs and have strategies available to assist business management with that important and noble effort to retain employees.
This work is all performed as part of our public-benefit nonprofit mission, which is funded in part by the City and County of Los Angeles, as their trusted partner, andthese consultations are confidential and provided as no cost.
