Women Entrepreneurs Rock Series and the Final Event
The New Jersey Small Business Development Center at Brookdale Community College hosted its seventh annual Women Entrepreneurs Rock the past November 12, 2020. In order to give continuation to this extraordinary event, we will be celebrating the final and magisterial event, focus in the impact of Women Entrepreneur Business, relevant actions that will showcase successful role models in a variety of business sectors. Also, exploring areas critical to a woman entrepreneur’s success.” Nowadays, 4 out of every 10 businesses in the United States are women-owned for a total of more than 12 million businesses. Unfortunately, in the entrepreneurial world, many women already start a step (or two) behind men. Lack of funding, lack of confidence and market saturation have presented significant challenges for women in business, all of which are compounded by the current pandemic and economic crisis. As Jackeline Mejias-Fuertes, Regional Director of the NJSBDC at Brookdale Community College said: “Women entrepreneurs have made tremendous progress and we are determined not to let this pandemic set them back “ and effort like this will contribute to the strengthening of women owners companies in our communities.
