Small Business Focus Group | Tuesday, July 31 @ 9 AM

We cordially invite you to participate in the first of a series of interactive focus groups on small business needs.

The purpose of this focus group series is to hear from YOU.

What are you concerned about as a small business owner? What do you wish landlords, the City, and your neighbors understood about small businesses in this neighborhood? Come share with other business owners and begin to develop possible solutions. The ideas gathered in the focus group series will be summarized into policy recommendations.

Light refreshments will be served.


Join us for breakfast to learn about the Cooper Square Committee’s work to assist local small businesses and the services and resources available

You may know Cooper Square Committee for our tireless work to preserve and develop affordable housing in the Cooper Square area. But did you know that as part of our work we support and protect independent small businesses?

Some of the ways we help preserve the distinct retail character of our neighborhood include:
