LAFAYETTE, LA- Jaci Russo, founder and CEO at brandRUSSO, was selected as one of eight mentors for the inaugural American Academy of Entrepreneurs program. Louisiana Economic Development (LED) collaborated with the Edward Lowe Foundation to
launch the American Academy of Entrepreneurs program, designed to aid businesses in growth and development. Eight companies were chosen to mentor other small businesses through a virtual retreat and series of follow-up discussions. “I am honored to have been chosen as one of the mentors for this event. Coming from a small business myself, I understand the challenges that can arise while trying to take off,” says Russo. “I am glad to share my knowledge in any way I can and greatly appreciate this opportunity.” Jaci has dedicated much of her career to continuing her own education and serving as a resource for others. In the past year, she has become a Professional Certified Marketer through the American Marketing Association and is a graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small
Business Program. The American Academy of Entrepreneurs retreat will be held virtually on July 28-30, 2020 and a series of virtual follow-up discussions will continue for the next six months.
