Hello, my name is Zahra Amanpour. I am the founder of Indiegrove, a coworking space in Downtown Jersey City, NJ. My career has been dedicated to providing services to entrepreneurs so that they can build and grow successful businesses. I have a MBA and MA in Social Psychology, which have both helped me in my career and running my own business. I believe entrepreneurs are the real change makers in society. They have the courage to do things differently and pave new paths. They create jobs and solve problems. After working with entrepreneurs for many years, I decided to take the leap. I walked away from a high paying job and for the past year and half have been experiencing the journey for myself with all its ups and downs, challenges and successes, fears and joy. It is an amazing journey, but one that has to be thought out and planned as much as possible. The statistics show that more than 80% of businesses do not make it more than 2 years. That number changes to more than 50% making it with a business plan. The numbers speak for themselves.
