Amber Grant Spotlight

Simply Apples

Woman Entrepreneur:
Jennifer Gero

We go over many applications for the Amber Grant and wish everyone could receive help for either starting their business or assistance in taking the business they have to the next level. We often come across a business or an idea that really intrigues us. Recently Jennifer Gero of Simply Apples sent in an application. I think you will be as interested as I was. One of my favorite movies is Baby Boom, a 1987 film staring Diane Keaton as a NYC business women who inherited a friends’ baby girl. In celebration of Mother’s Day, I’d like to share with you

Located in Stow, MA., Simply Apples is a web based store that offers baby gifts and housewarming gifts, with an apple theme.

Jennifer also shared with us a inspirational quote: “When you have a dream you’ve got to grab it and never let go.”- Carol Burnett
