NYC: Desperately Seeking Small Businesses
As the country's workforce places greater emphasis on entrepreneurism as a career option, especially as big corporations look to remain lean and mean coming out of the recession, New York City and its surrounding boroughs -- home to more than 200,000 small businesses -- is the poster child to small business ownership.
New York wants to maintain its competitive edge, particularly as cities across the country are upping their game as viable places to launch a business. The city is trying to get the word out about its growing Department of Small Business Services.
"Strengthening businesses of all sizes, at all stages, and across all sectors, has helped diversify the city's economy and create more jobs," said Robert Walsh, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Small Business Services.
