BATON ROUGE - LSU will once again host a Louisiana Small Business Development Center at the university.

The previous development center at LSU was opearted through the Louisiana Business & Technology Center.

"By moving the LSBDC at LSU into an academic unit within the college, we are able to better utilize the faculty, students and facilities to offer business counseling and entrepreneurial training," LSU SEI Interim Director Charles D'Agostino said.

Last year the LSBDC statewide network served 17,000 small businesses, created 964 new jobs, 165 new businesses, $54 million in capital, and helped generate $17 million in new state income tax revenue.
