Diahann W. Lassus and Clare E. Wherley have been named Leading Women Entrepreneurs & Business Owners in New Jersey. Own It Ventures partnered with New Jersey Monthly Magazine to commend women entrepreneurs for their service, leadership and contribution to their communities and the state’s economic recovery. The tribute includes a special section in the October 2011 Issue of New Jersey Monthly Magazine.
“We are excited about this project with New Jersey Monthly Magazine that honors women business owners because women are the forerunners to the economic recovery of our state. Over the last twenty years, women have surpassed men at twice the rate for starting their own companies. Our joint project presents phenomenal exposure for their efforts,” states Linda Wellbrock, Co-Founder of Own It Ventures.
Leading women were selected based upon pre-established criteria. They could be self-nominated or nominated by another person, and were judged on innovation, market potential, community involvement and advocacy for women.
