We are committed to bringing 200 business thought leaders together in order to provide engaging, informative sessions on financials, financing, business development, operational best practices, leading a small business and work life mental health balance. This is a great opportunity to explore and strengthen an entrepreneur’s business acumen, cultivate their network, and connect with like-minded business owners. There will be three targeted business paths that have been crafted to enhance their business needs: Enterprising Businesses (under $4M in revenue), Start Up Businesses (less than $350K in revenue) and the Corp-Preneur (business professionals interested in transitioning by way of ownership or investment).

In an effort to nurture and cultivate young people interested in entrepreneurship as a career option, Saturday will highlight a special track for the “Munchkin” Young Entrepreneur ages 12-18.
