The next round of the Queen City Pop-Up small business incubation program will be 50 percent longer in duration, after program organizers and the landlord agreed to extend it for another month.
The Buffalo Urban Development Corp., which runs the program, is currently taking applications from entrepreneurs who want to participate. Those who are selected will be able to set up shop in temporary donated space at Roger Trettel’s 517 Main St., which previously housed the construction field office for the Cars Sharing Main Street project during work on the 500 block and Fountain Plaza.
The program will begin in early May and will last through July, because past retail participants felt that two months was too short.
Applications are due April 8.
