Bronx Entrepreneurs and Business Network

This past week I attended an event sponsored by the Bronx Entrepreneurs and Business Network (BEBN), a networking group for, by and about Bronx entrepreneurs and businesses. The group is headed by Clarisel Gonzalez, a multimedia journalist, social media strategist, blogger, and social entrepreneur.

The event was hosted by the Bronx Women’s Business Resource Center and Monroe College. The guest speaker was Nilda Perez, CEO of, who made a presentation about “Building Your Business Mindset.”

The presentation was informative and inspirational. It help me really look at the possibility of jump starting an entrepreneurial venture. The session highlighted the pros and cons of running your own business, pinpointing the rewarding aspects of taking a risk to enrich your professional life. There would be great challenges along the way, however the BEBN provides me with an opportunity to connect with like-minded people and learn from their experiences and share my expertise.

It was great to be in the company of others striving for self-determination and success. At the event the BEBN debuted its new logo, created by CodeNYC, and Inca Kola refreshments were provided by the NYC LGBT Chamber of Commerce.

If you are a business owner or hope to be one someday, and a resident of the Bronx, check out BEBN and become a member.

      1. Wish I found this site before daeling with EXCALIBUR !! I told my hoilday membership company I wanted to sell it they put me in touch with Excalibur. Offered me 8,500 but needed a retainer of 600 euros which buyers would match so paid it. Nothing.. buyers pulled out’ but would continue to market it. then had call a few months later had a company interested in it, it would def be sold as it was a company paid another 1,200 euros which will get back along with the other 600. Guess what . they apparently never showed up to sign paperwork. By now smelling a rat ( yes too late I know) I told them to forget it and I’ll have my money back. Was told sorry all been used on marketing my membership nothing left so well out of pocket like many before me!! PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THEIR PROMISES OF BIG MONEY !! SCAM SCAM SCAM ALL THE WAY !!

      1. While I agree that this tragedy did not need to haeppn, I have to disagree wholeheartedly that ALL TRUCK DRIVERS HATE DOGS. What are you basing this on? I have seen a great many truck drivers who drive their trucks with dogs IN the cab with them. Also, having worked with truck drivers at a trucking company years ago, I can truthfully say that many of the drivers I knew had dogs of their own, that were like children to them.Truck drivers are people like you and I and I think in this story, the streetsweeper made a mistake. Granted, it was a mistake that could have been avoided had he been paying closer attention to what he was doing, or if he had slowed down to a safer speed, but I’m sure he did not go out of his way on purpose to kill a dog, especially with the owner standing right there with the dog.
