As part of the City's commitment to spur economic growth, SBS has released The New Normal: Adapting Your Small Business Playbook, a handbook filled with tools, technologies, and strategies to help entrepreneurs stabilize their business, protect their staff and customers, and build and grow beyond the pandemic.

In conjunction with the playbook release, we are offering a multi-session workshop series run by business experts to help entrepreneurs stabilize their business, protect their staff and customers, and build and grow beyond the pandemic. Each session will cover topics from the playbook and will be accompanied by virtual classroom instruction and take-home exercises for business owners to maximize their learnings.
