Your business news & updates
The City of Laguna Niguel is working to support our local businesses during this COVID-19 crisis and beyond. We will provide timely information, resources, programs and updates to help your business thrive!
Easy-To-Use Templates Can Help Your Business Grow
SCORE offers easy-to-use business planning, finance, sales, marketing and management templates to help you plan for a new business or grow your existing business.

You can use these templates as a starting point to create your startup business plan or map out how you will expand your existing business. Then meet with a SCORE mentor to get expert business planning advice and feedback on your business plan.
Tell Us Your Story
As part of an ongoing effort to promote and highlight Laguna Niguel businesses, we are encouraging small business owners to share their stories of why they started their business.

Perhaps it was a lifelong dream, career change or unexpected opportunity … whatever the reason, we want to know! Use your unique point of view to stand out from the competition and get closer to your customers.

Simply send your brief story and a photo to econdev@cityoflagunaniguel.org by August 31, and we will share your inspiration during National Small Business Week in September.
