Are you considering starting your own business or start-up? Are you interested in learning more about how to grow and run a successful business? Join YPIN for a conversation about what it takes to start a new business, what challenges to expect while growing a new venture, and how to find solutions to achieve success. The event will feature three panelists with substantial experience in starting and growing their enterprises: Christina Jennings runs a unique yarn shop that specializes in quality natural fibers and designer yarns. The shop has been a family business since 1972. Christina took over the shop in 1986 and has since expanded it from just basic wools and needlepoints to a wide variety of imported hand-dyed fibers from around the world. In recent years, she has branched out into gift lines and baby clothing lines from Europe. Shant Meguerditchian is a co-founder of Inovine, a web and mobile app development agency for tech startups and businesses in Europe and North America. With most of its staff located in Armenia, Inovine offers its clients a full array of services that range from developing an idea and going through the user experience process to implementing, testing, and delivering the products to the clients.
