women at conferenceEvery month the Bay Area Entrepreneur Center (BAEC) has events to foster the growth of student entrepreneurs and small businesses in the community.

This week the BAEC hosted an interesting, fun, and thought-provoking panel at our She Means Business event. The panel discussion centered on the importance of effective social media and the skills needed to be an entrepreneur.

Our guest panel was comprised of small business owners and social media influencers.  On the panel was Nicole Moreno-Deinzer, CEO and Founder of Epifania Magazine, an online publication for culture, art and style; Christina Sundari, a fitness model and social media influencer; and Shikha Sharma, a freelance professional hair and makeup artist.  These entrepreneurs addressed the many challenges that business startups face, especially those run by women.  Skyline College students, members of the community and the panelists discussed the value of cultivating a brand and the importance of surrounding yourself with like-minded people that can push you forward.  The attendees walked away with a better sense of community, as all the panelists shared their aspirations and ways they support their communities through education and entrepreneurship.

The Bay Area Entrepreneur Center is a hub of resources for anyone looking to start and grow their business idea.  Skyline College students, faculty and staff are welcome to come visit the BAEC and learn more.
