"Hear from our speakers about entrepreneurial f*ck ups, lessons learned, and how they are crushing it today."

Ever think to yourself, "wow, I want to do what he/she is doing," or "I bet working for myself would be easier than working for a company... I'd be more happier," or "if I had (fill in the blank) I'd go out on my own,"?

As with all things in life, entrepreneurship has pros and cons to it. Come join us on June 27 as our featured speakers talk about the good, the bad, and the f*cking ugly moments of entrepreneurship. We'll have beer from our friends at Catawba Brewing Company and food to purchase. Come laugh, cry and be inspired by our speakers!
