Over the course of the pandemic, SBS launched or expanded 51 initiatives and programs to support New Yorkers.
Our work was guided by four key principles: equity, adaptability, innovation, and collaboration.
The NYC Small Business Recovery & Growth report is a historic record of not only our rapid response from the beginning but the sustained efforts of an unparalleled team at SBS who went above and beyond to adapt to our new reality and to ensure our services continued to reach New Yorkers who needed them the most.
The work of the team at SBS is living proof of just how committed, talented, and invaluable our City workforce is.
SBS could also not do this work without a strong network of partners – the Mayor’s Small Business Sector Advisory Council, small business owners, advocates, industry leaders and associations, community organizations, financial institutions, philanthropists, and foreign consulates.
Together we continue to create prosperity across NYC.
The strong foundation we built for recovery is a springboard to the future we all desire and deserve.
SBS, and our partners, continue to invest in the jobs, industries, and communities that will drive New York’s economic future and make our city stronger, safer, and more equitable.
