From the event organizer:
“The two-day conference is one of the Midwest’s premiere ‘how-to,’ hands-on events for entrepreneurs of all ages and experience levels. Attendees range from ‘treps who are still developing their ideas to emerging company leaders who have already attracted angel and/or venture funding. These businesses cover a broad span of categories, from information technology to cleantech, from advanced manufacturing to the life sciences, and from business services to consulting.”
The highlights include a keynote speech from EMTEQ co-founder and CEO Jerry Jendusa, presentations by the 12 finalists in the Governor’s Business Plan Contest, panel discussions for emerging companies on how to “Launch, Grow and Succeed,” and an exposition of more than 40 companies from around the state.
