ICYMI: eBay Finds A Home in Baton Rouge

On Tuesday May 7th, 2019, Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome and online marketplace eBay announced two economic development initiatives – the expansion of eBay’s Retail Revival and eBay@Home programs to Baton Rouge. eBay, headquartered in San Jose, CA, chose “The Red Stick”  for its ongoing commitment to small businesses and entrepreneurs, as well as for its rich history, and the potential of its retail community.

Baton Rouge has been selected as the latest partner city in eBay’s Retail Revival program, which aims to help traditional “Main Street” businesses effectively compete in today’s digital economy.  Baton Rouge, Louisiana is now the sixth city globally to join eBay’s Retail Revival program.

eBay’s President and CEO , Devin Wenig was quoted saying, “We’re honored to partner with the city of Baton Rouge to equip entrepreneurs with new tools and resources that will help expand their businesses globally.”

The announcement comes during National Small Business Week, when the contributions of entrepreneurs and small business owners are celebrated across the U.S.  As far as small business goes in Baton Rouge Mayor Broome says, “The small business community in Baton Rouge exemplifies the vibrancy of our city.”

Businesses will have an opportunity to apply online to be a part of the program beginning in August at ebayinc.com/BatonRouge.
