Work with SBIDC: Available Opportunities
We are proud to offer an exciting opportunity to lead an organization that works at the intersection of economic development, workforce development, direct service, and advocacy in three of the most dynamic neighborhoods in New York City. The Southwest Brooklyn Industrial Development Corporation (SBIDC) was founded in 1978 as a business membership organization to advocate for, and provide technical assistance to, small businesses in the waterfront neighborhoods of Sunset Park, Red Hook and Gowanus. SBIDC continues to manage the city’s largest Industrial Business Zone. In addition, over the past five years, SBIDC has expanded its mission to help neighborhood residents secure and maintain good jobs, often in the same neighborhood businesses we have served for nearly 40 years. The organization has grown substantially in the past 5 years thanks to an entrepreneurial staff and board of directors. We are looking for an executive director to continue to grow the ways in which we help businesses and residents alike in Southwest Brooklyn in financially and organizationally sustainable ways.
Entrepreneurship Services Manager
The Entrepreneurship Services Manager will primarily be responsible for SBIDC’s Plan for Growth program, a new small business learning series housed at and in partnership with Industry City’s innovation and entrepreneurship lab. The series will assist businesses in their long term plans for growth and also utilize group learning techniques to develop an ecosystem and infrastructure that will ultimately serve as a network and support system for each individual business. The Manager will be responsible for maintaining long-term relationships with business owners in the program in order to provide critical assistance at different stages of a business’ development.
