Event description
Be inspired & get insights from a panel of 4 successful women who have followed their passions & created great product-based businesses

About this Event

This free event spotlights four women - all immigrants - who found success making and selling their own products. Some were motivated by passion, others were driven by the desire - or the opportunity - to fill a gap in the market, but they all overcame similar challenges – understanding who their customers are, pricing, sourcing, and work/life balance.

Hear their stories. Be inspired and get insight into how you, too, can overcome challenges to succeed.

The evening's program includes:

  • 5:00 - 6:00 Mentoring by SCORE
  • 5:30 - 6:00 Reception, with wine and hors d'oeurves by Eat OffBeat
  • 6:00 - 7:45 Panel Discussion, led by journalist Nina Roberts
  • 7:45 - 8:00 Networking

Meet the Panel:

Sufia Hossain launched Silly Chilly Hot Sauce in 2016, inspired by her passion for international cuisines with a Bangladeshi touch.

*Shelly Marshall created Island Pops with her husband when she found herself craving the local ice cream flavors from her native Trinidad

Sarina Prabasi is the co-founder of Buunni Coffee, a purveyor of high quality, ethically sourced organic Ethiopian coffee beans from farmer-owned small enterprises.

*Autumn Adeigbo created her own line of clothes that are colorful, elegant, and eye-catching, but also ethically sourced, produced and distributed.

Nina Roberts (moderator) is a journalist and photographer covering all aspects of the immigrant entrepreneur experience.

* BCNA clients

This very special evening is being presented by The Business Center for New Americans (BCNA) in partnership with SCORE NYC, for New York Women in Business and NY CDFI Women, with the generous sponsorship of the New York Women's Foundation.
