The Department of Small Business Services (SBS) will be listening and learning about the unique challenges Black entrepreneurs face in New York City in order to co-design programs to help more Black-owned businesses start and grow. By February 2020, SBS will report back on what they learn and launch tailored programs.

If you’re an entrepreneur dreaming of starting your own business, or working to grow your existing business, SBS wants to hear from you.

You can fill out an online survey on the SBS website. Individuals who complete the survey will be automatically entered into a raffle to win a $200 gift card. Only one winner will be selected.

You can also attend a community forum, join the BE NYC mailing list, and learn more online.
