NaperLaunch Entrepreneurs Week 2018

The fall season at NaperLaunch is a time to celebrate entrepreneurship! The fifth annual Entrepreneurs Week will come a little earlier this year -- September 25-27.

The program offerings at this year’s E-Week will also expand in scope to include guidance for not-for-profit organizations and franchising. NFPO’s have always been entrepreneurial in nature and what could be more entrepreneurial than franchising? As always, E-Week will offer some marketing guidance and insights for all entrepreneurs. Three evening programs are planned and open to the public.

To start the celebration, E-Week kicks off on Tuesday night with a Women Founders Night. Three successful women founders who have started three distinct enterprises will talk about their experiences and insights gained when they started up a new franchise, a for-profit business from scratch and a not-for profit organization. All three have overcome challenges to make their enterprises thrive and in their own way each has impacted the local community for good.

All startups and experienced entrepreneurs will want to enhance their marketing plans and strategies. The Wednesday program will highlight using video in a promotional campaign. Three experienced marketers will identify specific ways to economically create and use video.

For those considering starting up or wanting to improve their already started NFPO, don’t miss Thursday night’s program presented by Wayne Schreiner. He will address the ins and outs of organization structure and set up. There are legal issues to be addressed and Wayne will give a good summary of how to prepare and improve a new NFPO structure to have the greatest impact on the mission.

The full slate of events and speaker bios are available on the NaperLaunch website.

Join us in September!
