On October 16, 2023, Mayor Adams unveiled the MyCity Business site, a new website designed to help NYC businesses save time, avoid frustration, and connect more easily with City resources. MyCity Business site is the newest phase of Mayor Adams’ MyCity portal, and will serve as an easily accessible, all-in-one resource for applications, permits, licenses, and related information needed to open and operate a business in New York City. Features of the new site include:
The MyCity Business site is the result of a cross-agency collaboration between the New York City Office of Technology and Innovation and the Department of Small Business Services, advancing priorities outlined in Mayor Adams’ “Rebuild, Renew, Reinvent: A Blueprint for New York City’s Economic Recovery” and delivering on recommendations in both the inaugural report of the city’s Small Business Advisory Commission and New York City Councilmember Julie Menin’s “Creation of a One-Stop Shop Small Business Portal” bill, which was signed into law by Mayor Adams in 2022. Still in its beta phase, the MyCity Business site and the chatbot will expand in the coming months.
