JACKSON, Miss.–IF the community you live in is going to thrive, it needs a thriving business community. Mississippi Sec. of State Delbert Hosemann believes a new website launched Wednesday by his office will be key is getting businesses to come to the state by making access to information easier.
The website is called Y’all Business and can be found at www.yallbusiness.sos.ms.us.
“If you are a business looking to come to Mississippi, or a business looking to expand to Mississippi, YallBusiness does all of your research for you,” said Hosemann. “YallBusiness is a positive step toward promoting job creation and economic development. It also offers in-depth research to businesses never before available in one site and not available in any other State.”
YallBusiness includes detailed information regarding:
* Registered Businesses
* Banking and Insurance
* Public Lands
“More businesses mean more jobs and more tax dollars for your area,” said Hosemann. “Individuals can pin-point a location on a map, determine traffic counts, drive times, school district information and retail marketing data. We can even show how many times people ate at a fast food restaurant in the last six months-all in one comprehensive site.”
The website was developed by The Geospatial Group, a Mississippi company.
“Working with the Secretary of State’s Office, we have combined close to four hundred categories of freely available, and sometimes difficult to access, information from Federal and State agencies into a single site that can be used to explore potential areas for your business,” said Gary Hennington, President of The Geospatial Group.
YallBusiness is a work in progress and more information will be added to the site.
The Secretary of State’s Office encourages the public to provide feedback and suggestions on information they would like to see included on the site by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
