Small Business Education
BancorpSouth knows that small businesses are the lifeblood of our nation and a vital key to creating a robust and vibrant local community because they offer employment opportunities and bring needed commercial services to the communities we call home.
We have the resources and expertise needed to help you on the path to success, because we understand what it takes to start and grow a small business.
BancorpSouth is committed to partnering with community organizations and strengthening small businesses. We are an FDIC Small Business Alliance Member. We also teach the FDIC's Money Smart for Small Business educational program—a comprehensive, yet easy-to-understand educational course that promotes healthy businesses. Another component to building a healthy business is our partnership with local Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) and incubators across the BancorpSouth footprint, which helps to ensure our current and future customers have the tools necessary to succeed.
“Joe, thank you for being the presenter at the recent small business seminar I attended in Jonesboro, your presentation was easy to understand and most informative. I am one of those learners who needs to know the answer when the question is there. I am sharing your information with a friend of mine that owns a small business with a website. You are so kind to offer your encouragement, support, help and direction. With genuine thanks.” - BXS Small Business Seminar Attendee, Jonesboro, AR
