Each year the Jim Moran Institute hosts a conference for small business owners with opportunities for entrepreneurs to learn, share and network. Speakers are selected whose topics are broad enough to be helpful for every business owner, and breakout workshop sessions are held during which attendees can join smaller, more focused groups to discuss topics that interest them most.

The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, part of the Florida State University College of Business, is pleased to host the 11th annual Small Business Leadership Conference.

The conference will provide an opportunity for attendees to share innovative ideas and learn vital information to ignite strategic growth.
