Entrepreneur's Series: Building Market Leading Companies

Come hear from some of the nation's leading entrepreneurs as they share their stories on building market leading companies and successfully exiting - no matter what the economy looks like. Three of the panelists had a successful exit within the last twelve months.

Learn how they each started their company, picked the initial team, sold their first customers, raised capital, beat their competitors, scaled successfully and why they exited when they did. Also, hear about some of their biggest challenges and what they did to overcome it. Take away specific tips that you can implement with your own business.

We will also save time for Q&A and networking before and after the panel. Registration is open to the public, but we have limited seating available. Please register early.
