The New York City Business Express Service Team (BEST) has launched a new Boot Camp Series for small business owners of all kinds across the Five Boroughs. The series functions as a new online educational platform to help small business owners understand the rules and regulations needed to launch and operate a business in New York City, including industry-specific courses to help restaurants, street vendors, childcare providers, manufacturers, and other types of specialized businesses. The initiative builds on the Adams Administration’s groundbreaking efforts to cut red tape for small businesses and is an expansion of SBS’ NYC BEST intensive one-on-one support for entrepreneurs.

Classes are industry specific, ongoing, and completely free to take part in. If you’re looking to open a new business and don’t know where to start, or are just trying to beef up your knowledge of business operations, these courses are a great place to start.

NYC BEST is a program by the Department of Small Business Services that is designed to help business cut through red tape, get help and resources, and work through government.
