Downtown Alliance, Manhattan Chamber of Commerce Sponsoring Seminar on Ways to Survive the Recession
The Alliance for Downtown New York and the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce will hold a seminar and networking event from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 20, at the Digital Sandbox, 55 Broad St., to inform small business owners of the resources available to help them cope with the recession.
Although millions of dollars have been set aside for grants, loans and other assistance, many small business owners are still not sure how they can benefit. The seminar will explain available programs and help make them more visible—with presentations from city, state and federal officials. The event will also include a networking breakfast and a mini-expo featuring representatives from a range of business-oriented organizations.
