  • “The Start Something Challenge exposes us to the real talent in our communities and creates a strong case for investing in ideas, and in the concept and process of entrepreneurship. It makes an even stronger case for investing in bringing exposure, access and capital to entrepreneurs who may not have access to all three but can deliver real results when given the proper support and resources.”

  • “Women make up 70 percent of the entrepreneurs we work with year-round, so it was not surprising that this year all ten of the finalists in the Start Something Challenge were women,” said Alfa Demmellash. “It was such a privilege to see these women seize the opportunity to pitch their businesses in front of a packed audience, and demonstrate why their work is adding so much value to our communities. Even more, thanks to visionary funders like the Blackstone Charitable Foundation and JPMorgan Chase, we are able to make an investment into three of their businesses, providing much needed capital to help them achieve their business goals.”

  • “While this is our first all-female finale, it’s not surprising because the rate of women starting new businesses has never been higher. And while the rates of business revenues and employment from women owned-firms have continued to grow nationally, what hasn’t grown is their access to capital, funding that could catalyze their growth. Thanks in no small part to supporters of the SSC like the Blackstone Charitable Foundation and JPMorgan Chase, tonight we will be able to invest some cash into three business owned and operated by three New Jersey women.”
