Take a weekend & launch a business
"Why doesn't this exist yet?"
Well, why can't you bring that idea to the world?
Join us Friday, August 11- Sunday, August 13 where you'll be with like minded individuals and learn how to share (or just listen to) business ideas, see how to make a business out of it and share with a panel of judges how far your team can take a business.
This event is great for people that have an interest to learn the steps to start a business. This event isn't for people that just want marketing help on their existing business or product. Back of the napkin ideas, pre-revenue, pre-incorporation.

Over the past 20+ years, this passion has taken me through management positions in public, private, and not-for-profit sectors. Functional areas in which I have operated include quality, human resources, business development, environmental sustainability, and operations within manufacturing, business consulting, and digital services industries.
Because my experience is diverse, I am able to understand challenges faced by organisations as well as help them take advantage of opportunities in a rapidly changing market.
My strengths are in building and growing internal teams and developing opportunities in external networks.
