About the Program: The NYC Small Business Resource Network (NYC SBRN) is launching a Website Program, with the purpose of helping 300 small businesses across the five boroughs of NYC to improve their online presence at no cost to them. The two tracks for this program are web design or SEO assistance. We believe it is essential for small businesses to have an online presence, especially now, but we understand it is challenging for owners to take on these types of tasks on their own. We are seeking Project Managers who feel passionately about serving the small business community and aiding in the business recovery efforts our program has put forth.
