VIEEW Meeting at the 2017 ECNY Supplier Showcase, Bronx, NY

     On April 5, 2017, Independence Elevator Company’s owner, Amy DiPaolo, was honored to give a presentation at the VIEEW meeting, at the ECNY Supplier Showcase.
     The Supplier Showcase is an annual elevator industry trade show, hosted by ECNY (Elevator Conference of New York).  The ECNY Supplier Showcase allows for the VIEEW (Verticial Initiative for Elevator/Escalator Women) to have annual meeting, where industry women present and collaborate. This year, Mrs. DiPaolo was asked to present on her experience of owning and operating a woman owned business in the elevator industry.
     Mrs. DiPaolo spoke to the woman’s group about her history in the industry, which gave her the experience and knowledge to be able to start her own elevator company. She was pleased to help inform her peers of the challenges of starting and running a business, as well as applying for and qualifying for a WBE certification. Her presentation was well received and she appreciated the opportunity to share her story.
