Support NYC Small Businesses This Saturday, November 30

After Hurricane Sandy, the NYC Department of Small Business Services launched a campaign - "We're Back" - to help raise awareness and drive traffic back to businesses that reopened in the affected areas.

With more than 1,300 businesses registered on that have since reopened since Hurricane Sandy, we are expanding this interactive tool to be available for all small businesses in NYC.

Make it easy for New Yorkers and visitors to find you this Small Business Saturday - add your business to the map today!

ConnectNYC Fiber Access Program

The New York City Economic Development Corporation [NYCEDC] is looking for growing businesses that depend on secure and reliable high-speed internet for downloading and uploading content as part of their daily business operations. These businesses might be eligible for FREE construction of fiber optic cable to their business through the ConnectNYC Fiber Access program.

ConnectNYC provides free construction and installation of a dedicated fiber optic cable directly to your office space. Participating companies must sign a minimum of a one-year contract for internet service at market rates with one of NYCEDC's  participating Internet Service Providers to receive free construction. 

Eligible businesses must have an office location in NYC, have fewer than 500 employees, and explain in their application the potential impact of dedicated fiber optic cable on their business activities. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis until December 12, 2013 or until the available allocated construction funds are exhausted.
