We Help Business Grow

“The Business Solutions Center has always been there to help me and my business grow! When we called for help mobilizing capital, they connected us with the right financial institution because they understood our challenges and were genuinely happy to help. Through the years, the center continues to check in on our status to make sure we have everything we need for sustainable growth. Cannot express enough how committed they are to ensuring we succeed!”

“As someone with no prior business experience, being connected to the Center and to Small Business Services in general is vital to helping me succeed. Having access to free tools, resources, networking and learning opportunities has allowed me to cultivate new contacts; become more knowledgeable on available city resources and overall small business landscape here in NYC. Not to mention the added value of building up my community by sharing their information and updates with other small business owners.”
