The NJ Immigrant Entrepreneur Awards honor current first-generation immigrant business leaders helping local New Jersey communities thrive. The Awards were created to highlight the history and academic influence of New Jersey’s immigrant contributions to New Jersey communities throughout the state. This effort is to bring together business groups from across the state to join in celebrating the important role of immigrants to today’s economy.
Please join us at Roth Institute of Entrepreneurship - Silberman College of Business - Fairleigh Dickinson University on November 20th at 6:30pm to honor the recipients of the 1st annual Immigrant Entrepreneur Awards.
