EO NJ member Cheryl Biron and three other women entrepreneurs will be featured during a panel discussion the evening of March 27 at Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J. The event is free and open to the public.
The panelists will share their journey from idea to successful business, and discuss whether their gender was a help, or hindrance (or both). The startup founders will also tell how they got started, how they transitioned from a corporate job, tips for securing funding and advice for selecting a partner and how to divide up responsibilities. The event will also explore why women are under-represented as entrepreneurs.
