Small Businesses

  • Our small businesses are the foundations of our local economy and our communities, but today many small businesses are imperiled by rising rents, competition from online retail, and many other factors. Council Member Mathieu Eugene has made it a priority to get small business owners access to the resources and information they need to survive and thrive in the current business climate.

 

  • Council Member Mathieu Eugene has worked with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce to provide resources and information to business owners, to help with acquiring loans, using technology to improve their business, and more.

 

  • Council Member Mathieu Eugene works with the Church and Flatbush Avenue BIDs as well as the local business and merchant’s associations to assist local businesses.

 

  • As a member of the Committee on Small Businesses, Council Member Mathieu Eugene has worked to pass legislation to protect our small businesses, and stood alongside small business owners in Newkirk Plaza to call for the dismissal of burdensome summonses.
