New Americans are entrepreneurial. The New York State Office of New Americans seeks to harness this spirit by offering the support and access to capital necessary for them to start their own businesses in New York. Nurturing these entrepreneurial endeavors will grow our State’s economy and encourage New Americans to fully participate in the state’s workforce and communities.

Each ONA Opportunity Center will host a “starting your own business seminar” and other entrepreneurial trainings several times a year.
