By Timur Pakay

On Thursday, October 22nd, Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Rothman Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship hosted the Women Entrepreneurship Week Panel Discussion in Hartman Lounge. The event featured panelists, Elizabeth Gearhart, founder of Gearhart Law, Michele Joseph, founder of the Student Global Ambassador Project, and Ethne Swartz, associate dean for innovation and strategic initiatives in FDU’s Silberman College of Business.


Held in conjunction with Women Entrepreneurship Week at Montclair State University, the event shed light on the success and failure of women entrepreneurs and inspired young entrepreneurs to lead and take risks despite the tough business climate.

Part of the Silberman College of Business since 1989, the mission of the Rothman Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is to teach and support entrepreneurship and innovation in the academic, business and nonprofit communities. An outstanding entrepreneurship curriculum taught by an excellent faculty has helped make the academic program among the top 20 in the nation (as ranked by the Princeton Review).
