HPNG Entrepreneurs Event, April 19th - Speaker: NYC Small Business Svcs. Commissioner Mr. Robert W. Walsh

Headlining the premier of HPNG Entrepreneurs on April 19th is the Commissioner of the New York City Department of Small Business Services, Mr. Robert W. Walsh.

I'm very excited to have the opportunity to speak with Commissioner Walsh about New York City's initiatives to help the Hispanic entrepreneur and small business community. He will also discuss certification programs, including the Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Program, the Emerging Business Enterprise (EBE) Program and the Locally-based Business Enterprise (LBE) Program.

The New York City Department of Small Business Services has so many resources available for entrepreneurs and business owners who unfortunately don't always have the time to learn what they are and how they can benefit from them. Well, here's your chance.


Robert W. Walsh was appointed Commissioner of the New York City Department of Small Business Services (SBS) by Mayor Bloomberg in January 2002. During his tenure, he has redefined how the City serves and responds to the needs of the City’s 220,000 small businesses.

SBS has invigorated the City's 62 Business Improvement Districts – the largest network of BIDs in the country – which collectively invest more than $90 million dollars in the maintenance, development and promotion of commercial districts throughout the City. Under Walsh’s leadership, SBS has enhanced the delivery of technical assistance and incentives to NYC's small businesses through NYC Business Solutions and launched online tools through NYC Business Express to make starting, operating and expanding a business simple and easy. SBS has also energized the City’s promotion and support of minority- and women-owned businesses.

Prior to his appointment, Walsh spent five years in North Carolina as President of Charlotte Center City Partners, an organization dedicated to improving and growing Charlotte’s central business district. From 1989 to April 1997, he led the Union Square Partnership, where he played a key role in the neighborhood's revitalization. During the 1980's, he worked in the administration of Mayor Edward I. Koch. He began his career in public service as a New York City Urban Fellow, a program he later directed. Commissioner Walsh holds a bachelor's degree and a master's degree from Fordham University.

Don't miss it, I'll see you there!
