What is Rochester proposing?
The city of Rochester proposes an effort to reduce the regulatory burden for local small businesses, particularly Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises. The goal is to improve access to business capital support, and enhance local procurement policies and processes to support underrepresented entrepreneurs—helping them navigate local, state, and federal regulations, and take advantage of available business technical assistance.
