LACOMBE- The ECHO Lacombe Association has launched a new web-based economic development microsite, the Lacombe Business Toolkit, for existing and new small business owners in Lacombe.

It will be made available on the Echo Lacombe, City of Lacombe and Lacombe & District Chamber of Commerce websites.

“The Lacombe Business Toolkit aims to support entrepreneurs by providing current and relevant information about our local market, including details on business climate, industry and available real estate,” said Monica Bartman, Echo Lacombe Association board member and executive director of the Lacombe & District Chamber of Commerce. “It will serve as a practical tool to help directly address some of the challenges that new businesses experience when seeking good data to support their respective plans and visions.” 

The Lacombe Business Toolkit will provide online information that is easily accessible, clear and up-to-date.

Rather than entrepreneurs visiting multiple websites for information, the site seeks to serve as a one-stop-shop, where all the information they require for effective business decision-making is at their fingertips.

The microsite makes it easier for entrepreneurs to: 
- Research the local business climate and industry trends
- Identify their customers and competitors
- Uncover local opportunities
- Find available properties
