Featured Event: Young Entrepreneur Convention
Young Entrepreneur Convention Returns to Des Moines next spring. Early bird tickets are currently available for $79 at yeconvention.com.
“We are excited about the new offerings this year,” Adams says. “We are offering a two-track format that will allow entrepreneurs to learn from presenters with a career-path that closely mirrors their own.”
The two-track format will include a Startup/Tech Track and a Branding/Influencer Track, with each track featuring four speakers. There will also be a panel discussion featuring professionals from both tracks, exhibitors, networking events, and the largest Elevator Pitch Competition in the United States.
Jason Calacanis, an angel investor and titan in the startup world, is the first keynote to be announced.
“I encourage people to give us a follow to keep up on announcements and to purchase their tickets,” Adams says. “This is the kind of event that can change the course of an entrepreneur’s journey. We’ve seen it happen over the last two years. And we know it is going to happen again in 2018.”
