Local Biz Collective

SERVICE & PRODUCT DESIGN Thesis Project of the MFA Interaction Design program at the School of Visual Arts Local Biz Collective is a supportive network that helps New York City small business owners build an alliance in their neighborhood. The service has two main offerings: a toolkit and a website. The toolkit offers a framework of three workshops with engaging activities that help business owners solve their biggest challenges together. The workshops help business owners collaborate and implement ideas together. The website empowers business owners to connect with others near them, schedule workshops, invite others to join their group, and download the toolkit. With these tools, business owners can work together to co-address the obstacles of their industry.
