In December 2007, the Baton Rouge Area Chamber of Commerce, (BRAC) announced a new feature on its website. The BRAC Business Guide is a one stop information resource for current business owners and entrepreneurs planning to start new businesses.
The December 10, 2007 BRAC press release describes a two fold purpose for the guide. “The first provides information on starting a business, while the second provides insights into expansion for existing businesses.”
The guide contains sample business plans, a vast amount of forms, and contact info for filing the required food, beverage/alcohol permits, and occupational licenses.
There is a terms/disclaimer statement on the introductory page of the site. The Getting Started section has a very nice step-by-step, walk-through process on taking your business from concept to reality.
