“I’ve worked hard to grow the business since its inception 13 years ago, developing a great team and expanding our services to clients seeking to self-direct their retirement investments. This is such a high honor, to be recognized for my accomplishments as an entrepreneur and to join such a stellar roster of other business owners and professionals in New Jersey,” said Raskulinecz. She will soon expand her corporate roster with Next Generation Trust Company, slated to launch in July 2017.

Raskulinecz founded her company — a third-party administrator of self-directed retirement plans — in 2004 after wanting to include real estate in her IRA but being unable to find a professional to help her with that type of transaction. Today, Next Generation holds more than $600 million in assets for self-directed investors who may include a broad range of non-publicly traded alternative assets within their retirement plans. The company reviews all transactions before executing them upon clients’ instructions, and handles all the paperwork and reporting associated with the accounts. Next Generation also educates clients, the investing public and professionals about self-direction as a retirement wealth-building strategy.
Prior winners from New Jersey include International Vitamin Corp, IT Cosmetics, NPS Pharmaceuticals, and Tumi. National leaders who have been honored include such entrepreneurs as Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee Company, John Mackey of Whole Foods Market Inc., Pierre Omidyar of eBay, Inc., Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn Corporation and Mindy Grossman of HSN, Inc.
Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 18, 2017. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth ForumTM, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
