The New Jersey Immigrant Entrepreneur Awards honor current first-generation immigrant business leaders helping New Jersey communities thrive. The awards were created to highlight the history and academic influence of New Jersey’s immigrants and to bring together business groups from across the state to join in celebrating the important role of immigrants to today’s economy.
Among the award categories are the David Sarnoff Award for Advocacy, sponsored by Main Street Alliance, and the Albert Einstein Award for Innovation, sponsored by Einstein’s Alley.
Einstein’s Alley is one of the founding organizations of the consortium sponsoring the new awards. You may nominate immigrant business leaders in any of the categories by going to http://njieawards.org/wp/nominate/. Nominations are open until Monday, September 30. The awards will be presented Wednesday, November 20, at Fairleigh Dickinson’s Florham campus.
