NLV Connector a one-stop resource for small business owners and entrepreneurs to start or grow your business
Just in time for Small Business Saturday, the City of North Las Vegas is encouraging entrepreneurs and small business owners to contact the Small Business Connector at North Las Vegas City Hall to receive assistance in launching or growing a business in North Las Vegas.
Since launching on October 12, the NLV Connector has assisted local businesses in applying for a business license, accessing a revolving loan fund specifically for minority-owned businesses, and navigating the steps of becoming a business owner. In this crucial time where employers are struggling to fill openings, the NLV Connector is helping small businesses find qualified employees ready to work.
“The North Las Vegas Small Business Connector is the catalyst Southern Nevada needs to move our economy forward,” said John Lee, Mayor of North Las Vegas. “The NLV Connector has assisted small businesses in expanding, finding ready-to-work employees, and getting a start right here in North Las Vegas.”
In the first 16 days of its opening, the NLV Connector has supported 20 minority business enterprises, 14 women business enterprises, and several veteran owned businesses.
The NLV Connector is located inside North Las Vegas City Hall (2250 Las Vegas Blvd. N., North Las Vegas, NV 89030) and is open Monday – Thursday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Walk-ins and appointments are accepted by calling 702-895-1205 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the NLV Connector is part of the City’s ongoing COVID response to assist workers, families, and businesses impacted by the global pandemic through the smart and effective use of federal aid. North Las Vegas is placing a special emphasis on assisting North Las Vegas-based Hispanic-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, and Black-owned businesses, but all small businesses and entrepreneurs can benefit from the NLV Connector.
Partners in the NLV Connector include: UNLV’s Small Business Development Center, which provides business owners free expertise on how to start and grow a business; Access Community Capital, which provides small business owners and startup entrepreneurs business loans at subprime rates, with a focus on women, veteran and minority-owned leaders; and the Employ NV Business Hub, which connects job seekers and employers, and supports expanding companies with on-the-job training for new hires.
