New Castle County Chamber of Commerce recently issued the following announcement.
Name: 7th Annual Swim with the Sharks Pitch Competition Luncheon
Date: November 1, 2019
Time: 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM EDT
Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. It requires grit, dedication, sacrifice, and tenacity. But those who succeed contribute vitally to our economy and it behooves us all to do what we can to help those with the ideas and determination to succeed to reach their goals and create wealth and employment within our communities. The purpose of this event is not simply to present a check to a deserving start up, but to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit that fosters economic growth, community engagement, and employment.
Hear from Iola Harper, Deputy Director of Commerce for the Office of Economic Opportunity in Philadelphia, a nationally-recognized, award-winning advocate for small business and urban neighborhoods. She has spent well over two decades working diligently with minority and women-owned firms and economic development agencies across the Delaware Valley, helping them gain access to needed financial, technical, and contract opportunity. Her success working with not only small businesses but in urban neighborhoods garnered the attention of former Governor of PA when she was named one of Pennsylvania's top 50 Women in Business. Her work drew a national spotlight several years ago when she was honored by the Small Business Administration as one of the Nation's top small business advocates and when she was named one of Philadelphia’s most influential women by the NAACP.
