NYC’s First Small Business Month Expo

May is Small Business Month. To celebrate, the NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS) will host the first-ever NYC Small Business Month Expo on May 29 from 9:00am until 3:00pm. The expo will provide free information, resources, and direct services that address the needs of small business owners, no matter their stage of business, industry, or borough. 

More than 100 city programs, agencies, and partners will be represented, with information on: 

• Faster city permits and licenses
• Financing and legal assistance
• How to hire workers
• Contracts with the City of New York
• Free consultations, workshops, and networking
• … and much more!

This is a rare opportunity for business owners to find all of these resources under one roof. Register online, then attend in person at Pier 36 (299 South Street; between the Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges). If you’re unable to attend, you can stay up to date on other SBS events via their calendar.
