The Fort Worth Business Press will host its Second Annual Entrepreneur Summit on Friday, October 20th at the Museum of Science and History from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
This summit will focus on the life cycle of an entrepreneur — from inspiration to action, from a startup’s inception to its IPO — all rife with challenges and opportunities. Registration for the summit is $85 per person.
At each stage, entrepreneurs are called to assemble resources, implement plans and assume the risk of building a new business – a calling that, for many, can seem too great to answer.
“Part of the American Dream is to own your own business,” said Richard Connor, president and publisher of the Fort Worth Business Press. “This summit is a blueprint and a masters degree in business in one day.”
FWBP has teamed up with IDEA Works FW, The United Way, and The Alternative Board to organize a series of workshops focusing on social entrepreneurship, business plan pitches, securing capital, and finishing with a networking happy hour with four successful Fort Worth Entrepreneurs. .
The event’s keynote speaker will be Simpli.fi Co-Found and CEO, Frost Prioleau. Panelists and moderators will include:
• David Minor, Minor and Associates
• Gina Puente, Puente Enterprises
• Bobby McGee, US Growth Funds
• Elyse Dickerson, Eosera
