Juliana Bolivar

Juliana Bolivar is no stranger to business and entrepreneurship. Having been raised by small business owners, she had a front-row seat to the successes and failures inherent to running a business, and started her own business at the age of 16. She currently serves as the center director of the Alabama Small Business Development Center Network at Troy University, bringing to her role ten years as a small business consultant. She has become sought-after for her ability to come alongside business owners as they work to design and implement innovative solutions to drive start-up success and revenue growth. Her brand development strategies have gotten results for business owners in various industries from hospitality, restaurants, travel, athletics, to daycares, beauty, and personal branding.
In addition to her proven skills as a business leader, Juliana serves as a member of the board of directors of Turning Point, a non-profit working to end domestic violence. In this role, Juliana has driven organizational decision-making as well as doubled donations, and secured new local business partners. Juliana is fluent in Spanish.
