In October 2016, the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development re-branded its “Loudoun SourceLink” program to Loudoun SmallBiz. Loudoun was the first US SourceLink affiliate in Virginia, and its county-level site served as the inspiration for what become SourceLink Virginia. Now, the county has wrapped up its annual engagement with the Kansas City-based network and is now providing a “Resource Matrix” of local providers to local entrepreneurs.
The information formerly found via the Loudoun SmallBiz Resource Navigator has now migrated over to SourceLink Virginia. The two programs previously had a data-sharing agreement, and this new move allows the program data collected and developed by Loudoun to continue serving the public via the SourceLink model.
Users can find the 70+ service providers assisting Loundoun entrepreneurs at https://www.sourcelinkvirginia.org/resources/find-a-resource.
