LAS VEGAS — Lieutenant Governor Lisa Cano Burkhead announced the launch of the web page for the newly created Office of Small Business Advocacy. The page can be found on the Lieutenant Governor’s website.
“I’m thrilled that the web page for the Office of Small Business Advocacy is up and running and ready to help Nevada’s entrepreneurs,” Cano Burkhead said. “This will allow small business owners to focus more time on growing their business and creating jobs for their community. Business owners can simply come to our site, fill out a quick form and be connected to a person ready to help.”
The Office of Small Business Advocacy was created by Assembly Bill 184 and signed into law by Governor Steve Sisolak on May 31, 2021. The office is designed as a one-stop shop for small businesses to take advantage of resources available in state government, and reports to the Lieutenant Governor.
Last month Lieutenant Governor Cano Burkhead hired Sonny Vinuya to serve as Director. Vinuya comes to the Office of Small Business Advocacy most recently from the Asian Chamber of Commerce, where he served as president. He will use his business contacts to help promote the office, as well as serve as the direct line of commination between the office and Nevada’s small businesses.
“When the Lieutenant Governor asked me to bring my business background to this new office, I couldn’t wait to get started,” Vinuya said. “I’ve received so many calls since I took this position about where small businesses can go for assistance, and now that the website is up and running, we can really get to work.”
