The Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southern University is one of ten centers across the state of Louisiana and the number one center in state. This remark was made by the director, Will M. Campbell, Jr., who was guest speaker on Tuesday, November 5, for the weekly Baton Rouge Early Risers Kiwanis meeting.
“We got that award this past year in Orlando, Florida. We are now nationally recognized for being the top innovative center in the nation,” Campbell said.
The center, organized in 1986, is the state’s largest and most successful center. According to the director, they try to create jobs in our community. Their vision is to provide entrepreneurs and small businesses counseling at no cost.
