EntreCon is not only for the startup companies and new business owners.
âNot every business owner or entrepreneur is in the same stage of the entrepreneurial life cycle,â says event organizer, Mike Ensley. âEntreCon is catered to help entrepreneurs every step of the way.â
The conference will have three different âtracksâ for attendees. The first track is the start-up stage, providing guests with practical advice from past leaders. On track two, EntreCon will answer the âwhatâs next?â questions for entrepreneuers that have a business up and running. The final track will cater to those who are at the end of the entrepreneur life cycle.
