The Stone Pony
On Monday, October 15, 2018, The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) New Jersey at Brookdale Community College will present its fifth annual “Women Entrepreneurs Rock” event at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ from 6:00 pm-9: 30 pm (with networking until 10 pm). This free event is for business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs throughout New Jersey. The goal of the Women Entrepreneurs Rock event (#WeRockSmallBiz and #WER5) is to facilitate a real dialog about topics that are important to women business owners, with this year’s focus on leadership.
This is, by far, not your standard business function. From the topics to the venue to the speakers, our goal is to meet entrepreneurs where they live and offer current and candid insight, as we did in our previous events. No formalities and no canned responses…just real information from those who have successfully navigated the process of launching and growing a business and leading a team. 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.
NJSBDC at Brookdale Community College is proud to announce that the keynote speaker for Women Entrepreneurs Rock 5 is Melanie Willoughby, Director of the New Jersey Business Action Center and will be moderated by Ivy Charmatz , Executive Producer, News & Special Projects at News 12 New Jersey. The 2018 panel of dynamic entrepreneurs include:
•Gloria Booker – Co-Owner, Eternity Funeral Home
•Jacquie Fiorito – Charter Sales, Apollo Jets
•Alexandra Michelle Gonzalez – CEO & Founder, Savvy Marketers LLC
•Susan Hordych – Owner & Founder, Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe
•Jennifer Smiga – Co-Owner, Marketing Rival
Although this is a free event, space is limited, so attendees are required to pre-register. There will be door prizes and a cash bar. To register online for the Women Entrepreneurs Rock event, visit or http://womenentrepreneursrock.com/you can register by phone by calling 732.842.8685.
