An entrepreneur dream has been launched at Vision View Business Center in East Central Fresno.

Laneesha Senegal with Vision View said, "The airport district should be a welcoming place for tourist and small businesses alike."

The business center launched after Senegal, one of the partners, saw a need to help business travelers who come through Fresno Yosemite National Airport and need a place to do interviews and work.

"We have a virtual office for those who don't need a full-time office space, but they need it as PO Box. We have a secretary who can answer phones and do administrative work for them."

Senegal wants Vision View to be a one-stop shop for any business or traveler, with their office space and conference rooms. Memberships for space start at $50 a month and go up.

So far, the center is home to about 10 businesses, including Hope's Healing Hands.

"I believe this place has a lot of success coming to it, so I just want to be a part of it," said Hope Hernandez, massage therapist.

Many of the businesses are minority run.

Senegal said, "Often times they don't know where to begin, part of the service we offer is creating every single resource an entrepreneur needs from concept to launch."

The groups have plans to network with each other to help grow each business.

Plans are in the works to create an Airbnb penthouse, where travelers could stay when they are in the Valley.

Vision View hopes not only to expand their business, but one day sees an airport district with restaurants and a lively entertainment scene.
