As a part of Women’s Empowerment Night at Barclays Center on March 21, the Brooklyn Nets partnered with New Era on the Tip of the Cap program to honor a “new era” of thinkers, innovators, and leaders for their entrepreneurial drive and accomplishments in an in-game feature. The program highlighted young female entrepreneurs that are making a positive impact in the local Brooklyn community, as well as in the other four boroughs. We were pleased to welcome and recognize Brittany Williams, Maricia Josephs, and Nini Fan.
Brittany Williams is the Creator and Founder of Tehsur, producing plant-based hair and skin care products to promote health and happiness. Seeking better products to promote dry skin, Brittany took the initiative to create her own line. After years of work and development, Tehsur is now selling products online, at local trade shows, events and through different vendors. Brittany hopes that one day, Tehsur will be a well-known product that can be found in every hair salon and barber shop.
Maricia Josephs is the Founder & Editor-in-Chief at Dream in HD, a website that shares the stories of doers who dare to see their dreams in high definition, even when their paths look unclear. She’s worked with numerous companies, including NYLON Magazine, ASOS and Teen Vogue, while building a portfolio that features projects with Solange Knowles, Gabby Sidebe, Into the Gloss, NYMag.com/TheCut and Refinery 29.
Nini Fan is currently completing her M.S. in Biology and M.B.A. in Marketing at LIU Brooklyn. Expecting to graduate this upcoming May, Nini currently serves as the Project Director for the Brooklyn InnovaSeq Core Facility, a start-up contract research organization. The organization’s primary focus is to create unique, hands-on ways of teaching data science, and to bring DNA sequencers into the classroom. There, Nini develops relationships with biotech labs with the goal of obtaining internships for students, and to provide service and laboratory space.
