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).

This program fosters growth for the next generation of women-owned businesses and it was such a thrill to work with these bright young women who have so much energy and enthusiasm for the future. My mentee, Gaby Hernandez, was nothing short of exceptional and I cannot wait to see all that she will accomplish. I extend sincere thanks back to WBENC for this wonderful program and for allowing me to get an up-close glimpse of this country’s future.
