Gratitude was the overall sense from the many participants who attended this SBDC Small Business Enterprise Certification workshop at Kearny Point in on July 31st. There were business owners from all sort of industries: industrial supplies, fire arms, grant writing, care services, financial advisement, contractor, import/export… and the list goes on!

The entrepreneurs were kept busy by Jermaine Pharmes, Director of Hudson County Office of Business Opportunity, shared invaluable information about certification; Gregory Wilcox, assistant vice president of small business relationship division in Jersey City, who provided the food and information about Santander’s role in entrepreneurship; and by Ashley Sullivan, representing Hugo Neo Corporation at Kearny Point, who energetically executed a memorable event. Two raffles were held and one lucky winner walked out with the SBDC prize, “Think & Grow Rich by Napolean Hill” and the other with 1 month free rent at Kearny Point!

There was so much to learn and too many takeaways to list (you will simply have to come to the next event to soak it all in!), but there was one key take away: helping a business grow takes time, knowledge and commitment. Give us your time, we will share with you our knowledge and together, committed, we will help cultivate you goal!
