TAILORED FOR YOU

Are you tired of attending business/entrepreneurship conferences where you are bombarded with theories and industry jargon that did nothing for the actual growth of your business? We created Emerge-Preneur for you!

THEME – The Art of Creating a Culturally Vibrant Brand

Millennials are no longer seeking the perfect job, we are building businesses and opportunities that revolve around our respective passions!
This was the key take-home message from the 1st annual Emerging Entrepreneurs Summit, now rebranded as EMERGE-PRENEUR.
A year later, we believe this rings true and so we are seeking to ensure that millennial entrepreneurs have the knowledge, tools, and connections to build vibrant brands & businesses. Cue, EMERGE-PRENEUR 2017!  On the 16th of September, speakers and guests from diverse backgrounds and industries, that have a unique but more importantly, relatable perspective on the world of business will gather in a room to share knowledge with attendees. We believe that the knowledge shared will be beneficial and inspirational to all who attend.
