To inform NJEDA’ s role in strengthening the ecosystem in New Jersey for micro- businesses, especially those that are minority- and woman- owned, the Rutgers Master of Public Policy student research team aimed to answer the following research questions:
- Who is actively servicing the New Jersey market with technical and support services to micro- businesses? What are the services being provided and by whom?
- What are the most significant gaps in the market to help small businesses? What entities are most appropriately positioned to fill these gaps?
- What is the most impactful role for NJEDA to play in the provision of technical and support services for business operations, growth, and recovery?
