Now is the time to reflect on what needs to change as you map out your 2021 journey. One of the key components of your strategic plan will be generating income. If your plan includes creating a business or growing your business, there is a resource that can offer guidance.
The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Ramapo College is a federal-state education partnership, primarily funded by the United States Small Business Administration, that provides no-cost business management counseling and information services to small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Kathleen Cronin leads outreach operations at the SBDC at Ramapo College. During her tenure at the SBDC, she has used her outreach and business advisory skills to particularly help women-owned businesses navigate the challenges associated with starting, growing, and operating a business. These kinds of services have been especially helpful to business owners in navigating the challenges brought about by the pandemic.
Ms. Cronin serves as the center’s liaison to the Council on Foreign Relations, United Nations Association, UN Women, Bergen County Black Business Network, and Turkish Cultural Center of New Jersey. She previously served as an Executive Board Member of the Irish Business Organization of New York.
