In the beginning of 2010, Mayor Bloomberg announced the launch of the NYC New Business Acceleration Team (NBAT), a program designed to make it easier for entrepreneurs to open their doors more quickly and provide jobs for the community. New restaurants, bars, bakeries and butcher shops that will seat 50 or fewer guests may be eligible to participate. In addition to helping businesses get the answers and services they need, NBAT will work with qualifying businesses to schedule and coordinate most required inspections, such as those conducted by the New York City Fire Department, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Department of Buildings, and the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
Businesses interested in participating in the program should contact NBAT at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 311 and ask for New Business Acceleration Team or NBAT.
