Mini Movers and Shakers

Booked Parties announced that in partnership with the Jefferson Valley Mall, they will be hosting a launch event promoting many of the area’s leading young entrepreneurs for the first ever “Mini Movers and Shakers” celebration. The event, which models a science fair format, will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at the newly created “hub” in the Jefferson Valley Mall, from 12pm - 3pm and allows visitors to learn about these new and emerging businesses and how they were started. It also gives the participants a chance to see the evolution from an idea to a brick and mortar store, in the redesigned Jefferson Valley Mall. “We’ve seen a real transformation in the community, especially within the mall, which acts more like a community center for those around us, and by introducing these young and talented individuals, we can help connect them with the change agents in the area,” said Heather Novak, Marketing Director for the Jefferson Valley Mall. “We like to think that we are also ‘Movers and Shakers’ as a growing business in the area, making a positive impact and generating excitement for future growth.” Speakers will include local jewelry designer Samantha Auburn Levine from Auburn Jewelry, who began designing jewelry in high school and is now being featured in JCrew, as well as Octavia Ford, currently the Director of Volunteer Volunteer Engagement & Partnerships for the Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson. Both speakers will share their experiences of entrepreneurship and the journey they’ve taken to become successful in their business careers.
