On October 19, 2015 America’s Small Business Development Center New Jersey at Brookdale Community College will present the second annual “Women Entrepreneurs Rock” female founders event at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ from 6pm and run through 9pm (with networking until 10pm). This free event is for business owners (and aspiring entrepreneurs) throughout New Jersey.

According to a 2014 report produced by American Express, “it is estimated that, as of 2014, there are nearly 9.1 million women-owned enterprises, employing nearly 7.9 million workers and generating over $1.4 trillion in revenues.” The report also states that “Between 1997 and 2014, the number of women-owned firms grew at 1 times the national average.” – The State of Women Owned Businesses, 2014 from American Express OPEN. The goal of the Women Entrepreneurs Rock event (also known as WeRock) is to facilitate a real dialog about topics important to women in business.

“This is, by far, not your standard business function”, says Jackeline Mejias-Fuertes, Director of the SBDC New Jersey at Brookdale Community College. “From the topics, to the venue (one of the nation’s best known and loved music venues), to the speakers, our goal is to meet entrepreneurs where they live and offer current and candid insight, as we did in our inaugural 2014 event. No formalities and no canned responses…just real information from those who have successfully navigated the process of launching and growing a business.” The panelists will discuss their backgrounds, successes and challenges along the way and offer advice to fellow business owners. There will also be live Q&A exchange as well as the ability to pre-submit questions for the panel to discuss at the event.

 America’s Small Business Development Center New Jersey at Brookdale Community College is proud to announce that the keynote speaker for Women Entrepreneurs Rock 2 is Kellie LaDet, Regional Administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the event will be moderated by the President of DLG Consulting, DonnaLyn Giegerich and the 2015 panel of dynamic entrepreneurs includes:

  • Holly Migliaccio - Co-Founder/Owner Rook Coffee
  • Marilyn Schlossbach – Restaurateur and International Hospitality Consultant
  • Julie Goldman - Founder & CEO The Original Runner Co
  • Stephanie D. Burroughs - President of StephanieSpeaking LLC
  • Katherine O’Neill – Executive Director of Jumpstart New Jersey Angel Network
