Online publisher Latin Business Today will provide IBM’s small-business resource website SME Toolkit with articles and other editorial material.  Latin Business Today will regularly supplement the content available through the U.S. Hispanic section of SME Toolkit, a free website that promotes economic growth in under-served and emerging markets.

The site’s array of free tools includes a financing calculator, web software, business forms, and group calendars.

Like its predecessor, the new website offers mainly English-language content.
