Beaver Street Enterprise Center Mission Statement: The mission of the Beaver Street Enterprise Center is to stimulate economic growth through entrepreneurial development. To achieve this mission, the enterprise center recruits, trains, and nurtures entrepreneurial talent to fuel growth, create wealth and encourage reinvestment in our community.
Throughout history, and all ages and cultures, women have impacted the world around them. From the most renowned and celebrated to the least and unknown, women have led countries and commanded armies, excelled in entrepreneurship and as women took their place in society in the 20th century, they broke ground in every field for the women of their day and for future generations. In celebration and honor of phenomenal women across the globe, Beaver Street Enterprise Center hosted an event titled “The Sweet Taste of Success… A Celebration of Women’s History Month”
I had the pleasure of speaking at the Beaver Street Enterprise Center today, yet another talk in the line up of many speaking events this month. The Center is a 25,000 square foot professional office facility offering modern workplace amenities for startup and existing small businesses as well as business technical assistance, counseling, mentoring and assistance in marketing and obtaining business financing. The center is geographically positioned to stimulate economic growth in Jacksonville’s northwest neighborhood and is run by nonprofit Core City Business. Two other ladies, from Kilwin’s and Edible Arrangements, joined the panel discussion for women.
I left feeling one thing – inspired. Inspired listening to the stories of all the women who spoke up. Their hopes, visions and possibilities; and the willingness for these women to help one another. It’s an empowering sight, to see a group of women so eager to share their ideas and inspirations to help another woman. Hats off to all the hardworking ladies who attended and came to hear us speak.
