Small Business Series
NYU Community Engagement created a Small Business Series featuring virtual workshops from industry experts about storefront security, changes to Covid-19 recovery programs, tips to leverage NYU student talent to further your small business needs, and ways to advance Google marketing and branding tools. Along with each workshop, additional resources are provided connected to workshop themes.
The Small Business Series is co-sponsored by the Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, the NoHo Business Improvement District, and the Village Alliance. We thank each of them for their expertise and collaboration in coordinating this event.
