Here's a new New York-based entrepreneurship event to rival New York Entrepreneurship Week
- America Means Business
is a three day event, held on June 13-15, that will see various activities relating to entrepreneurship take place in New York.
America Means Business
aims to address the needs of entrepreneurs and assist and inspire those who have the dream of opening their own business. Organized by the Stevie Awards
, the week will feature dozens of inspirational keynotes, informative panel discussions, “How I Did It” case studies, basic startup education by SCORE, networking opportunities, an exposition, and many other events about how to start and grow a business and everything in between.
“By creating America Means Business
, we hope to help spark an entrepreneurial revolution in the U.S.A.,” says Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards
, which are celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2012. “Small businesses are the building blocks and the hiring engines for widespread economic well-being, and we want to enable many more people to realize their dreams of growing their own businesses.”
If you want to know how to start, grow and manage a business and happen to be in New York during that period, you'll do well to participate. Registration
is free through May 25, and US$10 thereafter.
