Queens Night Market hosts free series of small business seminars


QUEENS, NY – Queens Night Market is bringing back its series of free small business seminars to help budding entrepreneurs get their ideas off the ground.

The virtual series of seminars, which begins its sixth year on February 23, will cover topics such as business plans, branding and marketing, operational efficiency, social media and technology, and obtaining permits, according to a press release.

The seminars will also feature guest speakers, expert panels and opportunities for networking and questions and answers.

The Queens Night Market presents the three-part series of seminars in collaboration with the NYC Department of Small Business Services, President of the City of Queens, Donovan Richards, and the Queens Economic Development Corporation.

More than 300 companies made their operational debut at the Queens Night Market, an annual event held in 2015 in New York’s Science Hall in Flushing Meadows’ Corona Park.

“Not only has the pandemic been devastating to small businesses and entrepreneurs trying to make ends meet, but I think it will be a deterrent to entrepreneurship for years to come,” said John Wang, founder of the Queens Night Market , in a statement. “We hope these seminars will encourage at least some aspiring entrepreneurs to enter the decimated small business economy that will ultimately fuel the recovery of New York City.”
