Small businesses are the driving force of the New Orleans economy. The New Orleans Business Alliance helps entrepreneurs grow and expand their businesses through initiatives, and a combination of powerful online business tools. We are especially interested in growing businesses owned by entrepreneurs of color and women.
In addition to growth-oriented initiatives and valuable tools, the Business Alliance Small Business Growth team engages anchor institutions along with larger corporate entities and public agencies to create quality opportunities for small business owners.
We also provide assistance to neighborhood business organizations and stakeholders of commercial corridors, including distressed areas of the city where organizations work to bring business and commerce back to the city’s high-impact communities.
Explore our tools below, and if you’re ready, check out the InvestNOLA initiative. If you have questions or need assistance with growing your business contact our small business professionals at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Supplier Diversity Certifications offer many benefits for small businesses by creating access to contracting opportunities with municipal, state, federal, and corporate organizations looking to diversify their supply chains.
