The Bronx Community Foundation and IFEL Create Bronx Small Business Initiative

The Institute For Entrepreneurial Leadership (IFEL) announced today the launch of the Bronx Small Businesses Need Us initiative to assist local small businesses impacted by COVID-19 that are struggling to survive. This initiative is made possible by support provided by The Bronx Community Foundation.

“The majority of small businesses are ill-equipped to sustain through a crisis the magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic. Government aid and corporate-funded grants alone are not enough,” says IFEL CEO Jill Johnson. “Small business owners need hands-on support to address the business challenges they are facing. The volunteers we are bringing to the table provide the lifeline that they need to keep breathing. IFEL is extremely grateful to the Bronx Community Foundation for making these resources available to Bronx-based businesses.”
