STARTUP SUMMIT 2018

WHERE STARTUPS COME TO LEARN AND GROW

Startup Summit is an interactive, exciting, fun, and educational conference featuring leading keynote speakers and master classes from top entrepreneurs, innovators, and executives.

The conference provides you with a great opportunity to meet successful people and enjoy crash courses taught by experts on important topics you face throughout your startup journey.

Plus, during our breaks, lunch, and happy hour, we will have an area called the Consulting Corner. We have assembled a team of experts in various areas including sales, hiring, marketing, business intelligence, funding, etc… to offer one on one advice to answer your most pressing business challenges. 

Startup Summit educates, inspires, and connects thousands of founders from all over the region. In addition, nurtures the local startup ecosystems through events, media, and partnerships with organizations like Startup Grind powered by Google for Entrepreneurs. Come to learn and apply key insights you need to be successful and join the community!
