We wanted this year’s BizCamp to be bigger and better. And we knew from last year’s overwhelming response we’d need to partner with the perfect facility to co-host the event with us.

We’ve got a great group of speakers lined up. We’ll be announcing more on that in the days & weeks to come – so stay tuned.

Early Bird Registration has started so please join us by securing your seat at this year’s event.

What is BizCamp?

BizCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment.

It’s an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from participants. Sometimes referred to as an ‘un-conference’ it’s a break from the expensive, ‘pitch’-driven, cattle-herding events that have become all too common in the business world.

Rather – BizCamp is a participatory event.

Attendees help determine what presentations will be given, and even have the opportunity to present themselves. The presentations themselves are intimate affairs – small groups of 30-40 people. The sessions feature an open dialogue of questions, answers and -yes- even the occasional ‘I don’t know.’

Areas of Focus / Topic Discussions

  • The Entrepreneurial Experience
  • Marketing for Small Business
  • Business Technology
