Dr. Venante Charles, DPM, came to the NJSBDC at the New Jersey City University with the intention of securing a business loan to open up her first solo practice. Ryan Silvestre met with Dr. Charles a few times to review her business plan and fine-tune her financials. After perfecting her plan she met with Andrew Gaffney from the Union County Economic Development Corporation (UCEDC) and was able to secure the loan that was needed to open her business.

Dr. Charles also worked with the Hudson County Economic Development Corporation (HCEDC) &  the State-Wide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey (SHCCNJ) to make sure her plan was good to go!

NJSBDC at NJCU, in partnership with the UCEDC, SHCCNJ, and HCEDC, celebrated the closing of UCEDC’s working capital loan to Dr. Charles on March 1, 2019.

Securing the loan was a huge milestone for Dr. Charles’ plan to open her own practice. But more work needs to be done. “We are going to continue working together in order to fine-tune her marketing efforts and grow her business” said Ryan Silvestre
