Grants to New York City companies for business-related projects that promote entrepreneurship and innovation. Applications are invited for activities that develop entrepreneurial talent within New York City, offer resources for entrepreneurs, develop entrepreneurship infrastructure (such as broadband connectivity and affordable workspaces), or otherwise support the entrepreneurship ecosystem. Companies who have been certified with the New York City Small Business Services as Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises (“M/WBE”) are strongly encouraged to apply.

NYCEDC is issuing this request for expressions of interest ("RFEI") which offers a unique opportunity for interested parties to seek City support for programs. Accepted proposals may receive strategic and publicity support and in some cases, limited seed capital may be available for financially sustainable programs that seek to address a small funding need. NYCEDC encourages those responding to this RFEI to propose creative and economically viable projects in accordance with an innovative vision to serve the entrepreneurial community.

The RFEI is not primarily intended as a formal offering for a future negotiated transaction; however, NYCEDC reserves the right to enter into negotiations with respondent(s) on the basis of the responses to this RFEI without engaging in further processes. NYCEDC may elect to proceed to a contract for support with a respondent on the basis of factors stated in the RFEI, which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal, experience of key staff identified in the proposal, experience and quality of any subcontractors proposed, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the RFEI, and the proposed support.
