The last two years, the Think Big Kansas City Conference has brought a diverse group of entrepreneurs, investors, startups, leaders and visionaries together under one roof. By providing them with a day of inspiration and entrepreneurial education, Think Big Kansas City helped big thinkers achieve their dreams. And now Think Big is getting BIGGER! Inspired by Think Big Kansas City, a group of Maryland entrepreneurs have organized Think Big Baltimore coming to Towson University on July 13, 2011.
The entrepreneurial scene in Baltimore is booming. It is the perfect city to host the next Think Big Conference. A growing number of small business resources such as CreateBaltimore, Innovate Baltimore and Startup Weekend are all drivers of new industry growth in the area. Think Big Baltimore (also known as TBB) hopes to create opportunities that turn into new jobs and spur economic growth. The conference will be serving up expert advice from those who have “been there, done that.”
You will not want to miss keynote speaker Yanik Silver, CEO of Maverick Business Adventures. He will be sharing his fascinating story about life as a serial entrepreneur and how he turned an $1800 investment into a 7-figure online business. As a self-proclaimed “adventure junkie”, Yanik is bound to share stories that will educate and entertain. Other featured speakers include Techstars Mentor/Investor Ronald Schmelzer, Co-Founder of Startup City Mike Subelsky, and Urban Policy Development Consultant Otis Rolley.
In addition to the many fascinating speakers, attendees will get the chance to participate in CrowdPitch. During CrowdPitch, several selected companies will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges who will decide the two winning presentations. Audience members will get their chance to weigh in by investing their own “FUN” money in their favorite company pitch.
Think Big Baltimore is only a month away. Buy tickets now to reserve your place! Think Big Baltimore is the ideal opportunity to network and turn your ideas into something big. We cannot wait to see what the BIG thinking entrepreneurs of Baltimore can produce!
