Small Business Program

Given the high degree of linguistic isolation among new and recent immigrants, especially when employment opportunities become challenging, individuals often look to starting a business for self-sufficiency. The CSC Small Business Assistance Program (Program) was established in 1999 as one of the collaborative partners of the Asian Pacific Islander Small Business Program (API SBP), which is an SBA Women's Business Center, a federally funded agency. Other API SBP partners include: Korean Youth and Community Center, Little Tokyo Service Center, Search to Involve Pilipino Americans, and Thai Community Development Center. Originally, the Program had a primary focus in mom-and-pop businesses in the Chinatown vicinity. By 2002, our client base greatly expanded into the San Gabriel Valley in which the majority of the Chinese-American population resides.

Entrepreneurial Training Program 2018

The Small Business Program completed the 2nd series of our Entrepreneurial Training Course in May 2018. We had a class of diverse students who attended this series and learned about digital marketing, business law & tax, business planning, and included guest speakers who spoke on their business successes and failures.

Overall our attendees enjoyed our Entrepreneurial Training Program and was inspired to put their knowledge to test by planning their own businesses. We hope our students are successful in the future and invite anyone interested to attend our next Business Training series starting in October 2018.

Start Your Own Small Business Workshop

Small Business Program hosted its first event titled “Start Your Own Small Business” at the LAUSD's Parent, Community and Student Services Center. This workshop provided information on the benefits of starting the business. It reviewed the process of starting a business, including government regulations, permits and licenses and other business legal issues. Effective marketing strategies to promote goods/services and increase sales techniques are also taught.

The week of February 27th through March 4th is the Los Angeles America Saves Week. For the purpose of promoting saving strategies on paying off high-interest debt and saving for emergencies. Ms. Gloria Tang, Treasurer of CSC’s Board of Directors, and Vice President, Deposits Management of First “Republic Bank, brought her team to present the importance and tips of savings to the audiences.

The event was very well received. “Thank you so much for such wonderful presentations. The information that was provided to our parents was very valuable and based on the evaluations we know they truly appreciated the knowledge they gained,” Lorena Franco, Specialist of the Instruction Division from LAUSD commented.
