PENTA CEO hosts Special Edition of Top Growth featuring three female entrepreneurs

(Westborough) – On May 4, 2018, Top Growth TV began airing a special edition segment featuring three female entrepreneurs from the Greater Boston and Central Massachusetts regions. In this episode, viewers learn about the challenges of business ownership as shared by the show’s guests.

The owners of Aahana’s Naturals, Mountainside Market, and Blue Dynasty Entertainment and Travel represent a growing population of female owned businesses in the Commonwealth. Viewers will learn about three women who founded their companies in different industries including food, travel, and retail. Sonal Khakhar, nutritionist and founder of the startup company Aahana’s Naturals, enjoyed wholesome meals prepared with care by her mother growing up. Using the same family recipes, Aahana’s Naturals offers flavorful, nutrient-dense food options for today’s busy population. Khakhar’s unique perspective will give viewers an inside look at the fears and excitement of starting a business from scratch.

In an era where big business dominates, co-owner of the Mountainside Market Katherine Huck offers a one-of-kind destination for quality baked goods, sandwiches, take-home meals, and products from local vendors and area farmers. The market is a place that exudes warmth, ideal for gathering with friends and sharing a mug of coffee by the fireplace. Huck shares the steps she and partner Robin Springfield have taken to create a place where the whole neighborhood is welcome.

Blue Dynasty Entertainment and Travel, which has been in operation for more than a decade, is led by its founder, a Certified International Tour Director, Harvard University alumna, and former college professor Jeanne Richardson and her granddaughter Shantell Smith, who holds a master’s degree in Entrepreneurship from Simmons School of Management. Richardson shares her passion behind the business, and the company’s drive to help others experience the immense joy of travel.

In this interview, Penta talks with these three business founders about their journeys as a prelude to the SCORE Celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurial Conference on May 18th, bringing women-owned business founders together from all parts of the Commonwealth, where Penta leads a panel discussion of six entrepreneurs who share their challenges, trials, and tribulations during the start-up and growth stages of their companies.

The SCORE Celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurship Conference features speakers including Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, leaders from SCORE Boston, The Center for Women and Enterprise, the Small Business Administration, PENTA CEO, Deborah Penta, and others on Friday, May 18, 2018 from 10am to 3pm at the Sheraton Tara in Framingham, Massachusetts.
