  • NYC Small Business Resource Network: The Chamber is part of this citywide network which was built to support small business resiliency by offering personalized guidance as you open and reopen. Launched in response to the crisis facing many of the city’s 230,000+ small businesses in the wake of COVID-19, we’ve assembled an extraordinary collaboration of New Yorkers who are committed to small business recovery in our communities. We are leveraging our relationships with the city’s corporate, financial and professional services sectors, as well as universities, philanthropies and expert volunteers to help small business owners gain access to a range of programs and services.
