Whether you work in tech, a creative profession, or the nonprofit sector, there are plenty of good reasons to attend EntreFEST. This year, we’re shining a spotlight on more than 60 speakers and panelists, including venture capitalists, software developers, serial entrepreneurs, and more. See the full list of speakers here.
But there’s more to do than just soaking up a few words of wisdom:
Get Answers to Your Burning Questions
Aside from catching this year’s keynote address from Ben and Jerry’s co-founder, Jerry Greenfield, you’ll have a chance to participate in discussions and attend Q&A panels hosted by local industry legends, so you can ask questions and work through real problems you’ve encountered in the workplace.
To make it easy to find the sessions that are most relevant to you, we’ve broken everything up into three tracks: one for Developers, another for Innovators, and a track for Entrepreneurs.
Up Your Networking Game
Attend one (or all) of eight networking events designed to help you put yourself out there. Nothing stuffy—we promise! Kick back at TAI TechBrew, practice your elevator speech while you climb a 20-ft. rock wall, or get some work done during our Coworking Crawl. See the rest of our events here.
Recharge Your Professional Battery
Sometimes you need to take a step back to see the bigger picture. Recharge and re-motivate yourself at EntreFEST, and head back to work with a brain bursting at the seam with new ideas. (It’s not as painful as it sounds!)
Local’s Where It’s At
No need to waste hours of your day going through security, checking bags and changing flights. (Besides, who doesn’t like sleeping in their own bed?) Plus, since we’re local, you’ll get the chance to learn alongside your colleagues and clients, so you can make lasting connections.
Walk Away with Swag
What’s a conference without a few awesome freebies? EntreFEST sends you home with tools to keep you thinking long after your sessions end. Get copies of books from our featured speakers (Escaping the Build Trap by Melissa Perri and Obviously Awesome by April Dunford), vouchers for lunch at neighborhood restaurants (we can smell the Poutine already…), all the free coffee you can drink, and of course—a swag bag full of goodies.
Need help convincing your boss? We’ve made it easy to make your case, so you can save your mental energy for Improv at Penguin’s Comedy Club—another reason not to miss out!
