The initiatives include the launch of an innovative, web portal and Online Landrum Business Directory which will be sponsored by Visions Project Development Group LLC.
The Landrum Business Station (L.B.S) will be a free online business resource, available in both English and various languages that supports the start-up and growth of small and locally-owned businesses. The project will provide foundation for building a Business Assistance Program with the City of Landrum. The LBS will give entrepreneurs access to timely and localized business resources such as agencies and programs that support small businesses, local financial resources and demographic data. The links to the site will also be available on the City of Landrum website.
“By leveraging partnerships with non-profit agencies and the private sector, we can strengthen our local business communities to help them grow and prosper,” said John Lewis, CEO of VPDG LLC “By joining forces we can reach more people. On behalf of the City of Landrum, I thank we will find more partners for this helpful resource.”
“Entrepreneurship is extremely difficult in small towns, and working together with business owners to make this project successful will lay the foundation for economic prosperity in similar communities statewide.”
