MONTCLAIR/LITTLE FALLS, NJ - Donald J. Trump was an unconventional candidate, and many expect him to be an unconventional president. What will this mean in the areas of innovation and entrepreneurship?

On Monday, January 30, a panel of experts will provide insight on how a Trump administration could impact entrepreneurs, startup founders, innovators and inventors. You'll hear from:

Two political strategists/consultants, Democrat Julie Roginsky and Republican Michael DuHaime. Roginsky is a Fox News contributor who has been an advisor to Cory Booker, Frank Lautenberg and many others, including gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy. DuHaime has held senior positions with George W. Bush, Chris Christie, John McCain and others. What can we expect from a Trump White House? How will the Democrats interact with a Trump administration? Roginsky and DuHaime will provide their expert analysis, with viewpoints from both parties.
