Women-Owned Small Businesses In Jersey City

We are delighted to share that JCFamilies is inviting women-owned small businesses (outside of the downtown Jersey City area) to participate in the upcoming events this year.

We want to share that our primary goal is to support local businesses. As a result, we will select three to four different businesses to participate in the upcoming events. In addition, we will waive the participation fees ($285 for each event)

We care about buying local

JCFamilies organized some of the best family events in the area and supported local businesses. Over the years, we formed hundreds of partnerships with local establishments through event promotions.

We lend a helping hand

We enable businesses and give them visibility to connect with local families and sell their services/products through our events. By providing a platform to support your business, JCFamilies helps and reinforces local ventures. In that way, we assist budding entrepreneurs in becoming the pillars of our community.
