JURISolutions' news and updates for the month of July
A WORD FROM OUR CEO
As many of you know, JURISolutions is certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as a Women-Owned Business. WBENC’s National Conference and Business Fair was held in Austin, Texas two weeks ago and a number of us were fortunate enough to attend. While WBENC always puts on a great conference filled with an abundance of business opportunities, this year was particularly special for me because I was asked to be a mentor in WBENC’s esteemed Student Entrepreneur Program (SEP).
