(UNDATED) - Governor Mike Pence and officials launched a new initiative aimed at bolstering small businesses across the state.

The Governor signed an executive order creating the Office of Small Business & Entrepreneurship.

Executive Director Jason Schpok says the office will help the state combine, share and extend small business resources.

Schpok says the office will be a resource to help Hoosiers start and sustain small businesses.

Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann will oversee the new agency. She says it's the state's way of playing a more active role in job creation and sustaining Indiana's business friendly climate.

Schpok says the office currently receives funding from the Small Business Administration and other community partners, but the Governor will seek additional approval and support from state lawmakers.
