About Jennyfer

Jennyfer Crawford is a risk-taker. In 2014, she stepped out on her own to run her business – Ask Jennyfer – full-time.

In many ways, she did so without a net.

With about $1,500 in the bank, she forged ahead and grew a reputable brand marketing firm that now represents more than 250 small businesses and draws more than 12,000 guests to successful small business showcase events like All Things Detroit.

“What inspires me most are fellow entrepreneurs or people who risk it all for something they believe in,” said Crawford.

That’s precisely her story.

Crawford-Williams, a Crain’s Detroit Business’ 40 Under 40 honoree and 2023 Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award winner, initially found her profession by accident.
