Apply For Lower Manhattan Jump Start: A Free Program Providing A Path Toward Small Business Success

The Alliance for Downtown New York has opened applications for Lower Manhattan Jump Start: A Free Program Providing a Path Toward Small Business Success. The program, in partnership with the consultancy Streetsense, will provide 20 new retailers and restaurateurs coming to Lower Manhattan with access to expert help and resources over four interactive sessions. The Alliance is paying for these services (estimated at a value of $10,000 per award) as an additional incentive for entrepreneurs to make Lower Manhattan their new home.

Every startup has its moments when they wished they could summon a steady, experienced hand to solve the inevitable problems — whether it’s Covid-ready design questions, marketing or IT issues, savvy social-media strategies or demographic analysis. Each of Streetsense’s four sessions will be customized based on the needs of each business. Streetsense will also draft a launch plan tailored to each respective business. 

To find out more about eligibility for Jump Start, check out our application page. Acceptance into the program will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.

This program is part of a continuing effort by the Alliance to help Lower Manhattan’s business community recover from the Covid-19 crisis.
