La’Shawn Allen-Muhammad  is the C.E.O of the Entrepreneurs of New York (E.N.Y), a New York based, nationally operated, Entrepreneurial Service Agency.  E.N.Y is designed to increase productivity for small businesses in urban communities.  Founded in December 2010, the Entrepreneurs of New York strives to identify smart solutions for small businesses by fostering strategic partnerships, alliances and creating investment opportunities.

La’Shawn co-founded a not-for-profit organization, Brownsville Youth Association (BYA), located in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn in 1998.  Without any formal training, she managed to incorporate, obtain tax-exempt status, and receive funding to run the organization.  What initially began as a youth mentoring organization evolved to include career training and workforce development services. In 2005, La’Shawn became interested in forming a New York City Chapter of the National Black Chamber of Commerce (N.B.B.C).  After a five year long sabbatical from her entrepreneurial endeavors to start a family, La’Shawn revisited the idea of starting a New York City Chapter of the N.B.B.C. and as a result decided to launch Entrepreneurs of New York, Inc.
