BusinessSource Centers




BusinessSource Centers provide startup ventures and current small business owners with various cost-effective tools to make their business a success. Through these tools, small businesses can grow and remain competitive within the City of Los Angeles. Most services are provided at NO COST to LA business owners and resident entrepreneurs.

The BusinessSource Centers also provide free assistance for the City of Los Angeles Sidewalk and Park Vendor Permit Program. Bilingual advisors are available to help complete the required documentation to secure the City of LA, State of California and County of Los Angeles Permits.

COVID-19 has highlighted the financial fragility of many small businesses. Financial counselors can help counter these negative fiscal impacts, assist in recovery, and help local businesses to thrive. Money Management International (MMI) has agreed to provide credit and debt counseling with targeted support to small business owners in the City of LA at no cost in a variety of languages.
