Current and interested small business owners were given a chance to meet one-on-one with representatives from state government and get advice from Lt Governor Kim Guadagno.
The Lakewood Development Corporation, the administrative arm of the Urban Enterprise Zone, and the New Jersey Business Action Center hosted the event at the historic Strand Theater Wednesday night. Several dozen people braved the thunderstorms to attend the seminar.
Governor Guadagno gave the keynote presentation, and spoke about the importance of the government not getting in the way of businesses operating. She told those in attendance to take advantage of the opportunity to talk to “all of Trenton without having to pick up a phone.”
“These are the people that have the answers to the questions that you need answered so you have the confidence you need to grow, to hire one more person, or more importantly to get me, Trenton, out of your way so you can grow and hire one or two more people.”
