Assembly Member Chantel Jackson, LMSW, Hosts "Secure The Bag: Business Resource Fair" to Empower Bronx Entrepreneurs

Bronx, NY – Team Jackson made waves in the Bronx community with our "Secure The Bag: Business Resource Fair," held on November 4th, 2023, at the La Central YMCA. The event was a resounding success, bringing together small business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs, and organizations that could provide them with the necessary resources to thrive.

The event featured a resource fair and two insightful panels: an e-commerce panel and a retail product placement panel. The e-commerce panel provided attendees with valuable information on how to sell their products on Amazon.

The retail product placement panel was a highlight of the event, showcasing small business owners from the Bronx who shared their inspirational stories on how they started their businesses from the ground up. These stories resonated with many attendees, providing them with the motivation and practical knowledge to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.

My passion for advocating for small business owners and supporting entrepreneurs in my community drove this event. By providing a platform for networking and access to resources, I hoped to empower Bronx entrepreneurs to take their businesses to the next level and contribute to the economic landscape of the borough.
