ISBDC Launches/ Highlights Programs to Assist Businesses in Need

ISBDC recently announced 5 programs to assist small businesses during this economic slow-down.  We encourage you to look the programs over and see if one of them is a good fit for your business.

Project HOPE

Project HOPE is back! Indiana SBDC and Indiana University Kelley School of Business are partnering to support the long-term economic recovery of Hoosier small businesses and entrepreneurs. Eligible companies may apply for no-cost assistance to help establish or increase their online presence through website development, e-commerce support and other digital tools and services.

IU will be starting with 10 projects on January 18th, so if you have anyone that has been eager to participate, this would be a great time to get them submitted. In February IU will ramp back up to completing 40 projects every two weeks. ISBDC will not be publicly promoting the program until mid-February so existing clients can get in the queue early.


COVID-19 Response Plan 

Under the Governor’s Executive Order 20-50, all businesses or entities continuing or resuming operations in person are required to develop a COVID-19 Response Plan to implement measures and institute safeguards to ensure a safe environment for their employees, customers, clients, and members. This response plan must be made available to employees and posted publicly for customers.

Working with Servant HR, ISBDC has developed a COVID-19 Response Plan template that meets the requirements outlined in the executive order. ISBDC has also compiled additional resources to help businesses meet this requirement.



This program can provide some matching funds for small businesses in need of a consultant who offers technical and professional services. This can be technological, legal, financial, marketing and a host of different specialized needs.



This year-round program connects eligible small businesses with Quintegra, a talent connection firm, to identify qualified candidates, provide screening and background checks, facilitate interviews, and establish onboarding process to ensure continued success of the employee.


Export Indiana Accelerator Program

The Export Indiana Accelerator is a 12-week, no-cost, annual program offering Hoosier small businesses professional export guidance and leading research resources to create an executable, proactive Export Business Plan.


Strong Growth in Southern Indiana Establishments

By Dr. Uric Dufrene, Sanders Chair in Business and Professor of Finance, Indiana University Southeast

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a proliferation of self-employment and small business formation.   In a recent Wall Street Journal article (In the Covid Economy, Laid-Off Employees Become New Entrepreneurs – WSJ), the introductory sentences sum up the situation quite well, “The coronavirus destroyed jobs.  It also created entrepreneurs.”    The article cites Census Bureau data that applications for businesses with no employees surged 32% in the first 9 months of 2020.   While we do not have access to non-employer business data at the county level just yet, we do have establishment and payrolls data at the county level as recently as the second quarter of 2020.

Whenever we are talking about the state of the economy, or the general outlook, the focus is usually on the number of jobs.   For example, the monthly employment report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is probably the most closely watched economic indicator.   Equity market reaction can be quite volatile when the report is released on the first Friday of the month.

In reviewing the latest Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages data, I did notice an interesting pattern developing, and one that is positive for Southern Indiana.  Rather than focus on the number of jobs, we are going to examine the change in the number of establishments across Southern Indiana.  In this case, establishments include firms that have employees.    These data do not include self-employed entrepreneurs mentioned in the Wall Street journal article, but we are able to get a pulse of overall economic development.   As a region, are we seeing more net business formation, or are business closures outpacing any new business development?

In the second quarter of 2020, the five counties (Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott, and Washington) of Southern Indiana had the second highest, among all Indiana metro areas, in the percentage change in business establishments from the previous year.    In absolute terms, Southern Indiana added 135 establishments from the previous year during the second quarter and added 203 in the first quarter.   On a percentage basis (this allows us to control for the metro area size), the five counties of Southern Indiana (2.4%) were outpaced only by the Lafayette-West Lafayette (4.8%) metro region.

When we examine all of 2020, both the first and second quarters combined, we see a similar result.   The average percentage change from the previous year, in new establishments, for Southern Indiana (2.9%) was the second highest among all Indiana metro areas.  Like the 2nd quarter of 2020, Lafayette-West Lafayette (5.7%) had the highest gain for all of 2020.

Going back just a bit further, we see a similar pattern.   Over the past 4 quarters, Southern Indiana had the second highest percentage change (2.5%) in establishments from the previous year.   Lafayette-West Lafayette had the highest (4.1%).   As a comparison, nine other metro areas across Indiana had either negative or flat changes in establishments over the same time-period.  So, a gain of 2.5% is no small feat!

What does all this mean for Southern Indiana?  In a nutshell, this is good news.    A region can only sustain long-term economic development if business formation is outpacing business deaths.   New establishments replace old establishments, and investment, both from the outside and within, signal an overall robust economic development environment.   In a recent article in the Southern Indiana Business Source (November-December 2020), I documented the strong net migration to Southern Indiana.  These data combined with the recent activity on the change in establishments send positive signals about the growth trajectory of Southern Indiana.

Louisville Courier Journal ‘Best of our business community’ 1si CEO unites companies in pandemic

by Emma Austin

Louisville Courier Journal, December 17, 2020

Editor’s note: As we flip the calendar to 2021, The Courier Journal put together a list of 12 notable individuals who are committed to the advancement of Louisville. They include social justice advocates, business leaders, coaches, health care professionals, restaurateurs, arts leaders and more. 

This is one in a series of 12 people who are doing their best to help make Kentuckiana even better in the new year. 

Wendy Dant Chesser always hoped to be back home again in Southern Indiana.

Her career took her away from Jeffersonville where she was raised, not long after she graduated from Indiana University Southeast in 1991. She moved further north up U.S. 31 with each new job opportunity, eventually ending up in Berrien County, Michigan.

Then, in 2012, the president’s position opened at One Southern Indiana, the economic development organization and chamber of commerce for Clark and Floyd counties.

“I get a phone call from my mother, and she says, ‘I think it’s time you come home,’” Dant Chesser told The Courier Journal in a recent phone interview.

Eight years after returning home, Dant Chesser, 51, found herself in the difficult position of trying to leading businesses in her hometown and neighboring areas through the downturn caused by coronavirus pandemic.

Dant Chesser, the chamber’s president and CEO, said it became clear in early March the COVID-19 pandemic would impact the local economy. There were major event cancellations and shutdowns as everybody stayed home.

“I will never want to live through a time like that again, but it showed absolutely the best of our business community in Southern Indiana,” she said.

She and her 12-member team at One Southern Indiana came up with a plan involving three tracks.

The first, called 1si Connects, involved sending surveys to the chamber’s members to see what businesses needed and what they had to offer and then connecting those resources.

For instance, one major need was hand sanitizer, which was in short supply in early spring as people scrambled to stock up. One Southern Indiana learned one of its partners, Huber’s Orchard, Winery & Vineyards, was manufacturing hand sanitizer, so it connected Huber’s distillery with Formwood Industries, a Jeffersonville plywood supplier in need of the product at its manufacturing facility.

“Nobody knew exactly what to do, but everybody who had something wanted to do something,” she said.

A second prong was called 1si Calls, which included daily Facebook Live events beginning in mid-March offering education on how businesses could adapt to changing circumstances. The group led interviews with experts on a variety of topics: how to market a business without being face-to-face with consumers; best practices for payroll and human resources; and how to keep an office safe while employees work from home.

One of Dant Chesser’s favorite sessions was with a Floyds Knobs port-a-potty engineer who talked about how to sanitize a business space. “Because you really expect the port-a-potty guy to know about sanitation, and he did. It was one of our better events,” she said.

The third part of the relief effort included a loan program that provided assistance to more than 120 small businesses. The funding came from community partners, including the Caesars Foundation of Floyd County and the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana.

By late June, the effort raised nearly $1.2 million, which was distributed in forgivable or zero-interest loans to small businesses to keep their doors open.

Ellis Taylor, owner of Taylor’s Cajun Meat Co. in New Albany said he got a loan through the program. It prevented him from having to cut hours for his five employees because of meat-plant shutdowns.

“It’s helped out tremendously,” Taylor said. “Being in the chamber, we have connections to other businesses, and we can all help each other out. It’s such a blessing to be in the chamber and be a part of it all.”

But One Southern Indiana hasn’t always been in such high standing with the community, said Matt Hall, executive vice president.

“When Wendy first came here, the organization frankly was not in the best of shape,” Hall said. “We had some financial challenges; we had challenges with membership and investment.”

Hall, who knew Dant Chesser from her work in the Indiana Department of Commerce, said he was excited when he heard she was interviewing for the president’s position. Eight years later, he says she’s turned the organization around.

“I think Wendy saw the potential for this organization,” Hall said. “I think she saw the impact that this organization could have on this community.”

One Southern Indiana’s response to the pandemic, which came out of a brainstorming session the second week of March, earned the organization statewide recognition in July as the 2020 Indiana Chamber of the Year.

Dant Chesser said she was moved when she heard the award announced on a Zoom call.

“Our team has never deserved it more,” she said, adding they “made a big deal about it for a minute or so” but soon got back to work.

The organization’s response to the community’s needs was immediate, but it wasn’t a total breeze. Dant Chesser said her low point hit the first week of April.

“Even though we had a lot of stuff going on, I just had no confidence that any of it was going to work,” she said. “I’m working from my dining room table, so I didn’t have facial or nonverbal feedback to tell me whether or not this was any good.”

About that time, she tuned into a webinar hosted by the International Economic Development Council: “A Ten-Point Action Plan for Economic Developers.”

Richard Florida, founder of advisory firm Creative Class Group, and Steven Pedigo, director of research for the firm, shared their plan, telling the developers to think about what their role would be after the pandemic, and Dant Chesser had her moment of clarity.

“I had to think and look beyond the pandemic,” she said. “Because it had never occurred to me that life was going to resume beyond this pandemic — you know, I was just in my low point — and it changed my whole perspective.”

As Dant Chesser puts it, “economic development doesn’t happen unless you’ve got a good product to sell,” and the pandemic hasn’t changed the fact that One Southern Indiana still has a good product. Some of the selling points: available land, a good tax climate and being part of the Louisville metro area, she said.

As One Southern Indiana moves into 2021, the CEO said she sees the organization providing more direction for local businesses through training and education opportunities.

Additionally, Dant Chesser said she’d like to build on the the chamber’s experience in managing small business lending.

“I do have some growth plans for our organization; whether we can get them all accomplished in 2021 sort of depends on how the first six months go, but I do think there’s some opportunity for us on the back end,” she said.

Help is Available to Small Businesses through the Indiana Small Business Restart Fund

Gov. Holcomb approved $30 million in federal funding made available through the CARES Act to small business restart grants, helping accelerate the speed of economic recovery activity by providing working capital to cover certain expenses related to the global pandemic. Indiana small businesses with fewer than 50 employees and $5 million in annual revenue that have experienced a 40% drop in revenue will be eligible to be reimbursed for up to 80% of qualified expenses, such as rent or mortgage payments, utilities, lease payments for real or personal property, and safety investments, such as personal protective equipment (PPE) and infrastructure improvements.

Eligible small businesses that demonstrate a revenue loss of at least 40% will be awarded up to $2,500 for each month while small businesses that demonstrate a revenue loss of at least 80% will be awarded up to $5,000 for each month, with grants issued up to $10,000 per company. Of the $30 million allocated to the fund, at least $5 million will be reserved for certified minority- and women-owned businesses. More information on the program, including additional eligibility requirements, is available here.
