As a member of the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee and the Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet, Senator Booker knows how the Internet and new technology can provide the greatest tools for entrepreneurs.

Startups and other small businesses from Silicon Alley to New Jersey are using a range of technical platforms to start and grow their businesses.

Come out to network and learn the basics and benefits to creating a presence on social media platforms to get closer to your customer! The President of Stevens Institute of Technology Nariman Farvardin will open the event followed by remarks from the General Manager Managing Partner of Tiger Labs, Bert Navarrete, a New Jersey business accelerator. Senator Cory Booker will also offer remarks.

The feature discussion will consist of a panel with some of the biggest U.S. technology companies including Facebook, Google, Yelp and two NJ Small Businesses that use social media to connect with its customers; Websignia and CardCash. These powerhouse tech companies will explain to New Jersey small businesses the services they offer and how their platforms can help any organization or company communicate with their customers, drive traffic, and increase growth. 

Get your questions answered by the panelist during a break-out session, and the event will conclude with a Tech and Social Media Expo featuring innovative social media, and tech companies!
