On Monday, October 15, Deputy Bronx Borough President Aurelia Greene joined Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Small Business Services Commissioner Robert W. Walsh and other local elected officials to celebrate the opening of a 30,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility on Fordham Road in the Bronx that combines NYC Business Solutions services for businesses and Workforce1 Career Center services for jobseekers at a single location. The new, easily accessible facility located on a busy commercial corridor at 400 East Fordham Road and Webster Avenue is partnering with Fordham University’s Center for Entrepreneurship to provide a collaborative space for Fordham students and alumni to launch small businesses and access NYC Business Solutions services. Fordham will also help develop and provide curriculum to better serve entrepreneurs and small business owners in the Bronx and help them start, operate and expand. The Mayor also announced the opening of two new Workforce1 Centers in the Bronx – one located in The New York Public Library’s Francis Martin branch and another at Hostos Community College.
