Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce partners with Rowan to hold entrepreneur workshop for business owners

In partnership with Rowan College of South Jersey, the Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce will host its first-ever Entrepreneur Workshop from 9-11 a.m. March 29 at the Business and Corporate Center at Rowan College of South Jersey in Sewell.

This event includes a panel discussion and breakout sessions with experts in the fields of four critical areas that business owners and entrepreneurs must understand to launch and scale a successful business.

They include writing a successful business plan, how to finance a business and resources available to assist, the legal ramifications of starting and running a business, and how to hire and retain employees.

“Starting a new business or scaling your existing business is not easy. There are so many aspects that need to be considered. The Entrepreneur Workshop provides small business owners access to critical tools and resources to plan and run their businesses more effectively,” Chuck Garrity, owner of Clarksboro-based Death of the Fox Brewing Co. and the first vice chair of the GCCC board of directors, said.

The collaboration between the GCCC and RCSJ is as a result of the school’s offering of a new associate degree program and certificate of achievement in entrepreneurship at the Sewell campus.

Dean of RCSJ Business Studies Patricia Claghorn said the program was developed in partnership with the college’s business partners to facilitate success for people who have always wanted to start and run their own businesses.

“This workshop is the direct result of our relationship with the Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce and our partnerships with the business community. Our entrepreneurship advisory board at the college is committed to crafting the educational resources that will facilitate the success of new businesses in Gloucester County and in the tri-state region,” Claghorn said.

“It is so exciting to pair the deep academic resources of Rowan College of South Jersey entrepreneurship program with the ‘real world’ business acumen of the Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce to provide business owners a full arsenal of knowledge to take their business to the next level,” Garrity said.
