Best for NYC Launch

Our Shared

In 2016, The NYC Economic Development Corporation launched ‘Best for NYC’, a social program focused on promoting responsible business practices among small business owners. The campaign sought to engage NYC employers in a 45-minute online assessment, which qualified the businesses for the ‘ Best for NYC’ challenge.

Prior to SVM being engaged, the program had driven 500 employers to the challenge over the course of 12-months. Shared Value Media was hired with the goal to double that number in six weeks.
