Jenny McMillan, the President of JennyGems, shares her path to entrepreneurship and the challenges she's tackled since launching the business.
On this episode of First State Insights, Jenny McMillan, the President of JennyGems, speaks with Troy Mix, Associate Director at the University of Delaware's Institute for Public Administration, about her path to entrepreneurship and the challenges she's tackled since launching the business.
JennyGems is a Delaware-based business focused on designing, making, and selling original wooden signs and other home décor items. Before officially launching in 2015, Jenny and her husband Dave began the business as a part-time hobby selling antiques and collectibles to supplement their income. This June 2, 2022 conversation focuses on Jenny's transition to full-time entrepreneurship and how the JennyGems team confronted trade war and pandemic challenges by moving forward as a manufacturer of their own products and realizing strong growth in the process.
This episode is presented as part of the Delaware Founders' Stories series—a collection of conversations with underestimated entrepreneurs focused on documenting entrepreneurial journeys, recounting successes and failures, and reflecting on lessons learned for moving beyond the obstacles along the way.
