In an attempt to widen Asian-American merchants’ access to small business services, LaGuardia Community College has started providing an adviser at the Flushing branch of the Queens Library one day a week.
The adviser will be available in the basement of the library from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. every Thursday to give one-on-one advice and training.
“Providing small business services at the library is excellent news for small businesses in the area,” said U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Flushing), who has been pushing to get an additional Small Business Development Center in Queens.
“While this is not a full-fledged SBDC, it is a great first step to securing one in the future, and it will serve as an outstanding asset to local small business owners. I thank LaGuardia Community College for providing this valuable service, and for understanding the important needs of area entrepreneurs. I urge all small business owners to take advantage of this valuable resource to help grow their business and discover new opportunities.”
To book an appointment with the adviser, XiaoYuan Hanson, small business owners and entrepreneurs should contact xhanson@la
