To Learn From the Best
Do you need a little inspiration to help turn your amazing idea into a reality? You’ll hear from leading entrepreneurs who through their stories will open your eyes to new insights, ideas and possibilities. Discover how they have overcome tough times and challenges, plus their tips for taking your startup to the next level.
To Find Your Tribe
Ideas are more likely to come to life when great teams of people come together. You’ll meet a community of like-minded business founders, entrepreneurial role models and potential partners all keen to support each other. Although your startup dream maybe highly personal, you don't need to be alone to achieve it!
To Spread the Word
Many people that are in pursuit of growing their own brands often find themselves stuck for hours behind a computer. Although social media can bring people together, offline activities are just as important. So here’s an opportunity to network, get the word out, and tell everyone about the brilliant business you’re building.
To Do Some Good in the World
Basically, we need you. Part of the proceeds from the event will be directed to low income entrepreneurs on the poverty-alleviating website Kiva. Join the event today and together let's make a difference in the world. Your registration will help to improve a life and make a massive impact.
To Get Refreshed
There are a multitude of reasons to attend the event that can be helpful for your enterprise and its future. However, simply taking some time away from your office to de-stress and reset can be hugely beneficial. Aside from refreshing and re-energising you, stepping away will help you regain your balance and perspective.
