MOUNT LAUREL In 2001, Yaron Avitov helped found GoldTier, a banking software company, at Burlington County College's business incubator, which rents office space and administrative services to local start-ups at a reasonable cost.
In 2013, Avitov and his team sold the company to international media firm Thomson Reuters.
On April 23, Avitov, in tandem with six other professional entrepreneurs and state labor and economic-development officials, will provide advice to budding businesspeople in South Jersey as part of the college's free Technology Business Workshop. The event will run from 8 to 11:45 a.m. at the college's Enterprise Center, 3331 Route 38 in Mount Laurel.
After a morning networking session, the panels will begin at 9 a.m., and will cover topics including business taxes and social-media management.
The workshop is merely one event in the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development's Technology and Entrepreneurship Talent Network Industry Week, organized to help start-ups network throughout the state.
Among the panelists will be Glenn Manko, enterprise relationship manager at LinkedIn, and Tim Pereira, founder of technology recycling company Green Digital.
"A lot of people don't realize how much running a business costs," Pereira said. "Cash flow is king."
