Prosper Jefferson is a monthly seminar series co-hosted by JEDCO and the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce. The series was created in 2015 to educate, inspire and assist small business owners in Jefferson Parish and around the region. Speakers from around the business community join us each month to highlight an informational topic developed to assist our local businesses in achieving growth and success.
In order to give attendees a well-rounded educational experience, this year the Prosper Jefferson seminars are segmented into a smaller set of mini-series spanning three months. This will allow business owners to dive deeper into important topics, such as the full life cycle of a business from start to finish, the development of impactful and well-rounded marketing strategies, and the creation of a positive work environment for employees.

In addition to bringing expert speakers from around the region to educate small business leaders, the Prosper Jefferson seminars will also feature local resource partners that can support business growth in the region. Each month, the organizations will invite a different resource group, such as the Louisiana Small Business Development Center and the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program at Delgado Community College, to highlight their support services and connect with attendees.
All seminars will be held from 8:30 am to 10:30 am at either the JEDCO Conference Center on the West Bank or Entergy on the East Bank. The event is $5 to attend and will cover the cost of a hot breakfast for guests.
