Miriam Farkas is a Columbian-born former food service industry executive who launched her own event planning and marketing businesses right here in Newark a couple years ago. Farkas, who operates her businesses out of the Institute for Entrepreneurial Leadership’s (IFEL’s) member co-working space at 550 Broad Street in Newark, said her food services career has seen her work with food manufacturers, distributors, brokers, and as a salesperson, without ever seeing the people in those functions interact effectively. Like a true entrepreneur, she turned that deficit into an opportunity.
Learn more about how Miriam leaned on her food industry experience, intuitive knowledge of ethnic food restaurants’ opportunities and struggles, resources from IFEL, and even a close reading of the law to carve out a unique entrepreneurial opportunity in Newark when we post our full interview.
