Submitted by admin on Mon, 03/16/2009 - 09:35

"New York City has a $15 million plan -- a fraction of its $43 billion budget -- to help laid-off investment bankers start new careers as entrepreneurs. This month, the city began offering office space, complete with computers and kitchens, at the low rate of $200 a month per person. The city is seeding a $3 million "angel investment fund" for start-ups. It also hopes to use $30 million in federal recovery funds originally set aside to deal with the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks to give grants to companies that create jobs in lower Manhattan.
