2011 Entrepreneurs Conference
Welcome to the annual 2011 Entrepreneurs Conference at UCLA Anderson! Come meet, listen to and network with a variety of professional and student entrepreneurs at the largest entrepreneurial event on the UCLA campus.
This year's theme is "It's the Journey" and will focus on the process of building a business. For most entrepreneurs, the journey is never over as they continue to grow, overcome obstacles and set new goals and priorities. The joy comes from the completion of a succession of steps, not the finale outcome.
A variety of keynote speeches, panels and *new* case studies will highlight the thriving world of entrepreneurship in Southern California and beyond. Topics include fundraising, growing a local marketing presence, relationship-building as well as industry topics such as cleantech, new media, retail and mass customization, restaurants, education, microfinance, real estate and biotech. A fast pitch competition will also be held.
Breakfast, lunch, refreshments and happy hour will be provided. Please keep checking back as more speakers and schedules are confirmed!
