MCRCC’s first round of it’s new breakfast series – Education, Entrepreneurship and Innovation – was marked with success on Tuesday, Oct. 8, as attendees enjoyed a delicious breakfast and engaging lecture.

The second portion of this event included the 7th-Annual New Jersey Immigrant Entrepreneur Awards ceremony, in which four entrepreneurs were honored for their work by Einstein’s Alley, a non-profit economic development initiative.
