     HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC) seminar “Starting and Financing Your Business Idea” originally scheduled in Livingston will now take place in Hammond on Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Southeast Louisiana Business Center, located at 1514 Martens Drive.
     Recent flooding in the Livingston area prompted the location change. The free seminar is designed to help individuals interested in starting a business.
     “This workshop is highly recommended for all individuals interested in determining the feasibility of their business ideas and for those planning to start or who have recently started a small business. It would also be helpful for anyone seeking a small business loan or wanting to learn more about business planning,” said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Small Business Development Center.
     Topics to be covered include writing a business plan, sources of funds for start-up and expansion, small business resources, and required licenses.
Representatives of Capital One Bank and Louisiana SBDC at Southeastern are scheduled guest speakers.
     Although there is no cost to attend, seating is only guaranteed for pre-registered attendees. To register or for more information, call (985) 549-3831. Online registration is also available at
