She has keynoted to audiences up to 30,000 people in stadiums, to leading intimate workshops for smaller groups, as well as online symposiums. Her clients have ranged anywhere from Fortune 500 Companies to top Universities, Business and Wellness Organizations, Chamber of Commerces, Women’s Groups, High Schools to Non-Profits.

Jen has been a top business and lifestyle contributor and content creator for major television networks such as ABC, CBS, CNBC, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business News, and the The CW.

Her success skyrocketed with the creation of the Butler Bag, the world’s first compartmentalized handbag, that became a multi-million dollar brand, and has not stopped since. Jen springboarded the Butler Bag’s success into an entire lifestyle brand, found at a variety of price points and well known retailers, which led to the creation of subsequent lifestyle brands, Leader Girlz, and Empowered by Jen Groover. Leader Girlz teaches young girls the importance of empowerment through play, while the recently launched “Empowered by Jen Groover” brand, including her one-hour PBS special and forthcoming book, comprises a variety of consumer products that encompass her quotes and inspire people to live life with passion and purpose.

Launching in 2018, Jen will be releasing three books - a relaunch of her best-selling What If? & Why Not?, with update resources, The Operators Manual for Life, and #Empowered (based on her PBS Special), with Make this Matter & CO Publishing.

Jen’s passion for inspiring others to realize their greatest potential on all levels, which was originally realized in her first business right out of college in the fitness industry and as a National level fitness competitor, continues as the driving force behind her many successful brands. Jen’s diverse experiences and businesses span many different industries and she has no desire to slow down anytime soon. Jen continues to strive toward her ultimate goal, which is to innovate in every industry she is inspired to play in, while empowering others to achieve their goals. Jen is more than a multi-faceted, multi-talented individual - she is, undoubtedly, a force to be reckoned with. Jen believes in active participation and lives by the belief that “if you are going to complain about something you better be willing to inspire change.”

After 15 years in IT and Information Security, Frank Bradshaw noticed a serious gap. For all the talk that small and midsized enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of the economy (97% of the US economy is driven by the SME), they weren’t getting the protections from cybercriminals that the other 3% were executing on.

After working at companies like Time Inc, IBM, MetroPlus and others, Frank Bradshaw takes the experience working with these large organization and can now scale the security program down to the size and budget that and SME can afford.

Ho’ike Technologies can now bring a complete virtual cybersecurity team to an SME at a price they can afford. Now an SME can have a security program, once reserved for the top 3% companies, that is on par with a Fortune 100 company at an SME budget.

Jason Silverglate

Co-Founder & CEO of Continuous Networks, LLC

I'm the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Continuous Networks — the most trusted leader in IT Support for NY / NJ since 1997. An innovative executive, I thrive on building something from nothing and finding creative solutions to complex problems, whether it be technology or business related.

Passion is what drives me in all aspects of my life; passion for life in general, technology, simplicity, and the chase. I surround myself with people who are equally passionate and share my goals and values. Some of these people include my beautiful wife Allison, my dedicated business partner Ross, and my amazing team who demonstrate their dedication to our customers and success daily.

I got my first "computer" in 1984 from my parents. This sparked my interest in computers prompting me to start a web design company at the age of 16. I attended Rutgers University with a double major in Computer Science and Finance. By age 19, my web design business changed into "DedicatedNOW" the predecessor of Continuous Networks and has been growing since then. I am always looking for and learning about emerging technologies, keeping my pulse on the industry—Continuously! "

I'm a serial entrepreneur with a passion for technology and business. I set the bar high for myself and my teams and love to see results in hours/days in contrast to months and even years!"
As a former volunteer fireman I like to be prepared for anything. My wife says I work too much. It's possible…
