Small Business is Big Business in New York State

New York State inherently understands the needs of small business.

Small businesses employ more than half of New York’s private sector workforce, so it is no surprise that Empire State Development (ESD) established a Division for Small Business. The Division directs a broad array of programs to support the development and expansion of small businesses with under 100 employees.

The Business First Resource Center provides a one-stop database for many state resources, but to speak with someone about your specific small business needs, please contact New York State’s Small Business Division at (800) 782-8369.
