Jobs: Small Business & Entrepreneurs

As a mayor with a background as an entrepreneur, Mike Bloomberg worked hard to make it easier to start and grow a business in New York City – and to connect more people to those jobs. This resulted in major new investment opportunities for small businesses, as well as a record level of job placements during the midst of the national economic recession.

  • Increased career placements from 500 placements in 2004 to 29,000 placements in 2012.
  • Created NYC Business Solutions Centers, which offer free services that serve nearly 10,000 businesses annually.
  • Formed 24 new Business Improvement Districts.
