About Us

About Our Office: 

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Los Angeles District Office (LADO) serves Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Ventura Counties, which have a combined population base of nearly 11.5 million residents. This tri-county service area is the nation’s top international trade and manufacturing center. There is a diverse economic base with trade, tourism, entertainment, technology and financial services leading the way. The Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles are the busiest in the country, and L.A. remains a powerful force in manufacturing output.

LADO has always maintained a strong lending portfolio, is first in lending nationally to minority and women-owned businesses, and active in government contracting - helping with billions in contract opportunities during the last three years.

In addition to our in-house activities, SBA LADO provides technical assistance and counseling through our Resource Partner network. Our Small Business Development Centers, Women's Business Centers, Veterans Business Outreach Centers, and SCORE mentors offer training and coaching assistance to improve the technical skills of small businesses throughout the LADO service area.

LADO is proud to support entrepreneurs every step of way to small business success. Contact us today for more information about access to capital, counseling, contracting opportunities, and disaster relief.
