NYBDC President and CEO Pat MacKrell attended the annual NADCO conference in Washington last week to meet with other similar organizations from across the country and discuss ways to help small businesses access funding and continue to grow.
Helping businesses locate and grow in disadvantaged New York communities is a part of the NYBDC mission. Today, NYBDC met with NYC Small Business Solutions to explore new programs to help New York’s small business community grow.
The Community Advantage (CA) program is a new SBA pilot loan program designed to meet the credit, management, and technical assistance needs of small businesses in underserved markets.
The NYC Food Manufacturers Growth Fund, managed by NYBDC, provides a vast array of resources to businesses in this critical industry.
The food manufacturing industry is critical to the economic growth of large parts of NYC. Working in cooperation with Goldman Sachs and the New York City Partnership, we are pleased to offer this growth opportunity to NYC food manufacturers.
