Enliven NYC: Storefront Startup knows that locally rooted small businesses give identity to our City’s neighborhoods and will be key to our recovery. One of the biggest obstacles small businesses and prospective entrepreneurs face is commercial rent and access to affordable space. That's why we're offering entrepreneurs, especially those from low to moderate-income neighborhoods, women, or entrepreneurs of color, temporary rent-free storefronts to help them launch and grow.
This program is in partnership with NYC Department of Small Business Services
