Entrepreneur Magazine’s Growth Conference Offers Help for Small Business

Did you promise yourself that 2015 would be the year you finally got serious about pursuing your entrepreneurial dream? Perhaps that dream is to start your own business, become part of a franchise network, or develop an idea you have for a new product or service. Or maybe you’re already a small business owner looking to establish new business partnerships and otherwise grow your company. In either case, Entrepreneur Magazine’s 7th Annual Growth Conference is a place where you can speak with experts, get sound advice, gain fresh perspectives, share knowledge, and arm yourself with business plans and strategies that actually work.

This year’s Growth Conference in Miami is a one-day event offering entrepreneurs an opportunity to network with others who are part of (or who are looking to join) the small business community. Attendees will get the opportunity to “pitch” their business to the Entrepreneur editors and get their businesses featured in the magazine. Plus, a very select few will take the stage with the event’s keynote speaker -- Barbara Corcoran from The Corcoran Group and star of TV’s Shark Tank -- and get personal advice from the business icon herself.

One of the struggles many small businesses face is a lack of opportunity to bounce ideas off of like-minded peers, or to query experts for guidance they can trust.

One of the struggles many small businesses face is a lack of opportunity to bounce ideas off of like-minded peers, or to query experts for guidance they can trust. The organizers of the Growth Conference have remedied this by offering access to a variety of small-business experts and assembling a conference schedule packed with more than 20 seminars and panel discussions on topics that include sourcing investment capital, gaining media coverage, franchise ownership, marketing, and accounting.

But perhaps the most attractive (and pleasantly surprising) fact about the Growth Conference is that it’s absolutely free! The UPS Store works with Entrepreneur to bring this conference to life and provide small business owners a day filled with valuable networking, keen expertise and insight. And so you’re sure to walk away inspired, the event includes a luncheon announcing the magazine’s 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year award winners.

Part of succeeding as a small business owner (or becoming one) is opening yourself up, and taking advantage of opportunities to learn, grow, and explore business-building avenues and resources. Safe to say that Entrepreneur Magazine’s Growth Conference is one of the very few free events that allows you to do just that. Full details are available at http://www.entrepreneur.com/growthcon. Hope to see you in Miami!
