Indiana Small Business Development Center enters the INBiz network

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — INBiz, the state of Indiana’s one-stop business portal, launched in 2016 allowing Hoosier businesses to connect with numerous state government offices on one website. The one-stop concept has helped businesses stay in compliance with state law by putting numerous reporting requirements on one website. This year, the Attorney General’s unclaimed property reporting requirement joined INBiz. As a result, they collected nearly an additional $40 million because more business owners were aware of the filing requirement.“Each year INBiz continues to grow making it easier for businesses to comply with state law by putting filing requirements in one location,” said Secretary Lawson. “The portal has become so popular that many entrepreneurs have started calling asking for advice beyond how to meet state laws and regulations. Many want business advice. To meet this need, I am pleased to announce we have partnered with the Indiana Small Business Development Center.”INBiz has teamed up with the Indiana Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to provide Hoosier entrepreneurs and small business owners with business development advice as they execute many of their business requirements on the one-stop portal. The INBiz call center receives numerous questions from Hoosier entrepreneurs wanting to start a business. Many of the callers are looking for advice such as “what type of business should I form, an LLC or LLP?” This is legal advice the INBiz call center is unable to provide. The INBiz team found this troubling as the goal of INBiz is to provide good government service. The team looked for a solution and found the Indiana SBDC.“With nearly half a million companies employing 1.2 million Hoosiers, small businesses play an important role in sustaining Indiana’s economic momentum,” said Elaine Bedel, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC). “We’re thrilled to partner with INBiz and the Secretary of State’s office to continue delivering great government service and helping streamline operations for entrepreneurs seeking to launch and grow their dream businesses.”In partnership with the IEDC, the Indiana SBDC helps Hoosier entrepreneurs looking to start and grow a business by delivering expert guidance and resources like strategy development, market research, business planning, export assistance and valuation. Now, when an entrepreneur calls INBiz looking for business advice, they are directed to the Indiana SBDC.So far in 2018, the Indiana SBDC has assisted in 310 new business starts and in the creation of 1,240 new jobs. By partnering INBiz and the Indiana SBDC, the goal is to increase this assistance in 2019.To learn more about how INBiz can serve your business needs click here.last_img read more

Sigurdsson still eyeing top four

first_img Things have been hit and miss under successor Tim Sherwood, but Sunday’s remarkable 3-2 comeback victory over Southampton has given them a glimmer of hope. Sigurdsson’s late winner means Spurs are just seven points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and, while accepting it is their rivals’ to lose, the midfielder admits failure to secure a Champions League berth will cap a frustrating campaign. “It will be a disappointment if we don’t finish higher than fifth,” he said. “We brought a lot of players in last summer and we know it’s going to take time. “It depends on some of the players coming in – some of them fit in straight away, some need a few months or a season just to get used to English football. That’s life. If we can finish in the top four, it will be fantastic. “Would continuity help us for next season? I don’t see why not. There are fantastic players here and we have good staff all around. “If we start next season well, then everything is possible. Most of the new players will be in their second season so they will be used to English football by then and they will have settled in.” This is Sigurdsson’s second season with Spurs, having rejected the overtures of Liverpool to move to north London in 2012 – a decision he may now regret given how things stand. Brendan Rodgers’ side are just a point off leaders Chelsea and will look to maintain their title charge with an eighth successive league victory when Tottenham head to Anfield on Sunday. Gylfi Sigurdsson accepts this season will have been a flop if Tottenham fail to secure a top-four finish. Despite losing talisman Gareth Bale in the summer, a flurry of big-money signings meant there was an air of excitement at White Hart Lane. However, too many of the new additions failed to hit the ground running and Spurs’ poor performances led to Andre Villas-Boas’ sacking in December. Press Association The Reds will be buoyed by their 5-0 win at White Hart Lane earlier in the season – a match which did not make pleasant viewing for substitute Sigurdsson. “We want to win every game, especially after the way we lost to them here last time,” he said of the game that cost Villas-Boas his job. “We’re on a mission now to get as many points as we can. It’s important for us to get at least one point, if not three. “The key for Liverpool has been the form of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez. “The way they have been playing is a result of the goals they have been scoring, which give the team a lot of confidence. Brendan Rodgers has them playing very well.” last_img read more

Mourinho ready for challenge ahead

first_imgJose Mourinho’s Chelsea will begin the 2014/15 Premier League campaign with title aspirations but the manager knows there is little margin for error. Chelsea finished third last season, despite beating champions Manchester City and runners-up Liverpool both home and away, as defeats to Aston Villa, Sunderland and Crystal Palace proved costly. And Mourinho is well aware of the competition for the top spots in the standings. “I was a little part of the process that made Chelsea a force in the last decade, and I come back with the dream to try to be a little part again of the next decade. “That’s what we are doing, and for sure the results will come.” Eden Hazard will remain a key figure despite reports linking the Belgium playmaker – and Chelsea’s number 10 after changing his squad number – with moves to Paris St-Germain and Barcelona. “People like Eden bring the magic and win matches in one action,” added Mourinho, who praised and criticised Hazard at times last term. “They have the flair and the artist’s touch of the football. “At the same time, he was not just that. He had a big evolution and he scored more goals than before. “His work-rate for the team improved a lot too, so for a player like him he deserved it and the fact he was recognised by the fans gives him for sure more appetite for the next season to be even better.” “Next season will be very, very difficult, even more so (than last season),” Mourinho said on chelseafc.com. “I know Chelsea will be better, but maybe the other teams will be better too, so it will again be the kind of league where you don’t know if you’re going to finish first or finish sixth. “In this moment I have to think and feel and say we want to finish first.” For the first time in 14 years Chelsea will begin a season without Frank Lampard in the squad after the 2001 signing from West Ham, who went on to become the club’s record goalscorer, left at the end of his contract. After eight years at Chelsea, left-back Ashley Cole is also a free agent, although yet to confirm where he will play next season. The arrival of striker Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid is imminent to join his fellow Spain international Cesc Fabregas in a continuation of the evolution of the squad. “After 10 years of titles and great moments, this is a moment to rebuild again, because teams don’t last for ever,” Mourinho added. “Clubs yes, but not the teams. In the same club you have to build another team. Press Associationlast_img read more

Rodgers: Players lack confidence

first_imgBrendan Rodgers admitted his Liverpool side are lacking in confidence as he saw them lose 3-1 at Crystal Palace on Sunday. Liverpool looked like halting a run of three straight defeats when Rickie Lambert broke his duck for the Reds by tucking home a perfect Adam Lallana pass inside the opening two minutes. With Mario Balotelli sidelined with a groin injury, fellow summer signing Lambert was handed just his second Premier League start and did not take long to take advantage of his chance. Luis Suarez was left in tears on the pitch following that game and since his departure the Reds have struggled for the type of form which turned them into challengers. Rodgers invested the money received for Suarez into his squad and now wants to see more from them, insisting he knows results must improve if he is to avoid facing questions about his future. “I’m not arrogant enough to think that I will be in a job through anything,” he added. “Any manager will tell you that you have to win games and you have to get results, especially after how we’ve been developing as a football club. “But I have a great communication line with the owners. We’ve been honest enough with each other, but ultimately you have to get results. You have to perform. “There’s no doubt as a manager you have to get results. That will support the confidence to the owners and you take it from there. “I will only ever do my best. The best has seen us develop well. Now I need to fight even harder and take the responsibility, because as manager full responsibility comes down to me. Any pressure comes on to me. “We’ve brought in very good players. Some of them are very young and are not going to be ready for a few years, but they’re in now. We have to do better in our performance level.” Palace boss Neil Warnock was starting to feel the beginnings of some pressure on his position as he went into the game without a win since a September victory over Leicester. But the 65-year-old felt the performance from his side would have troubled any Premier League defence as the win takes them back out of the relegation zone and up to 15th. “The goal could have knocked the stuffing out of us, really,” he said. “We said we wanted to play but got caught by a simple goal. You can score too early sometimes. But the way we played, constructed not kick and rush, we created some good chances. I’m disappointed we didn’t score more. “I think we’d have done that to most teams today. That’s just this league in general. If you take anyone lightly, you can get turned over. “We can cause any team in the league problems if we play. We need to sort out clean sheets. Julian didn’t have too much to do today but we conceded early doors again. One long ball and we ball-watched and were punished. I’d love to get some clean sheets on board.” But that was as good as it got for Rodgers’ side as Dwight Gayle – who scored twice in the memorable 3-3 draw here last season – levelled after man of the match Yannick Bolasie saw a driven effort come back off the post. The second half started slowly but two goals in a three-minute period were enough to seal a well-deserved and much-needed win for the Eagles and Yannick supplied Joe Ledley to put the hosts ahead before skipper Mile Jedinak bent home a 30-yard free-kick to seal a 3-1 win. The defeat leaves Liverpool 18 points adrift of pace-setters Chelsea and just two ahead of Palace, and Rodgers conceded heads have dropped in his squad following a poor spell. “It was bitterly disappointing,” he said of the performance. “You’ve seen a team low on confidence today. Not quite together as a team. We need to find a solution very quickly because it was very disappointing. “I put the team out there, the best team to win us the game. We made a good start. You could see our passing was a wee bit tentative and then we make mistakes. Mistakes you wouldn’t expect to see at a team that’s supposed to be challenging. “Overall, that intensity and togetherness in our game isn’t there. When you don’t get the results, that affects you. That leads to (damaged) confidence. We have to work harder but we go away bitterly disappointed with the result. At this moment, we’re just not good enough.” The draw here last season was ultimately damaging to Liverpool’s title tilt as Palace struck three times in 11 minutes to snatch an unlikely result.
