Volusia County Launches Website to Promote Business Resources

Local entrepreneurs and small-business owners looking for resources to help fuel their success have a new tool. The Volusia County Economic Development Division’s partners have created a website, VolusiaBusinessResources.com, after a survey found local business owners were frustrated by an inability to find assistance, according to a county media release.

The site features advice from more than 40 business assistance partners and provides startup and existing businesses with easy-to-find resources, how-to guides, licensing requirements and financial assistance.

According to Economic Development Director Helga van Eckert, VBR is focused solely on listening to local businesses and providing tools to power their success.

“We are very excited to launch the new brand and website,” van Eckert said in the release. “VBR represents the collective efforts of the county’s business resource partners who continuously work to support our businesses. VBR assists businesses of all stages by sharing best practices and leveraging our resources.”

Volusia Business Resources is a countywide public-private partnership that includes government economic development agencies, cities, chambers of commerce, universities and colleges and business support organizations. Initially formed to assist businesses during the pandemic, VBR continues to work collaboratively with all economic development stakeholders to help new and existing businesses grow and thrive in Volusia County.
