For her work with startups and small businesses and promoting entrepreneurship and economic development in urban communities, Cynthia has received numerous honors and awards including from the U.S. Small Business Administration, the U.S. Department of Commerce, the NYC Mayor's Office, and many others. She has appeared on or been featured in MSNBC's Your Business, Crain's NY Business, The New York Times, and Essence magazine as well as a host of other media outlets.
