Small Business Day 2010

N.Y.S. Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli at Small Business Day 2010

On Monday March 8th, more than 200 New Yorkers attending Small Business Day in Albany listened to New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli announced the creation of a new Small Business web site. DiNapoli went on to tell those in attendance that the site, part of Your Money New York.com, was designed for small business owners and New Yorkers interested in starting a business with the essential resources needed to create and grow their business. The new section offers access to reliable information on how to start a business, get the appropriate permits and understand small business tax implications, as well as survive tough economic times.

“The importance of small businesses to our state's economy cannot be overstated,” DiNapoli said. “Small businesses provide half of all private sector jobs. They've created nearly 70 percent of all new jobs over the past ten years. New York needs small businesses, and we need to do a better job to help small businesses thrive. This new small business section of Your Money New York is a good start. It provides a lot of useful tools for New Yorkers who already own small businesses and for those looking to start one.”
