The new small businesses hub will offer recommendations for small entrepreneurs to grow their venture.

Google introduced a new website for small entrepreneurs, where they can get suggestions to better run their businesses, such as personalized plans, workshops and news about updates on Google’s small business-focused tools.

The hub, called “Google for Small Business,” is part of the tech giant’s measures to support budding entrepreneurs. It has previously launched Search and Advertising tools that helped small businesses, website publishers and other entrepreneurs collectively rake in $335 billion in economic activity last year.

The launch of the Google for Small Business platform coincides with International Small Business Day. On the site, users can enter their company name and website and answer a few questions about their plans for their venture. Google will respond by suggesting a personalized list of actions that may include advertisements, building online presence or installing Google Analytics.

For business that don’t have a name yet, users have the option of creating their own through the new website’s help. Business owners are asked whether they want to stand out online, reach more customers, or work more efficiently.

The website also offers in-person training within a community. Users can enter their city and state to get recommendations about the upcoming trainings in their area. Through the site, users can read more details about a certain workshop and RSVP on those that they want to attend.

Google for Small Business was launched five years after Google My Business, a platform where business owners can set up their business profiles, which will appear on Google Search or Maps, making their businesses more visible to customers.

Google My Business also offers website building and a suite of other business-related solutions.
