OTEF, The Opportunity Through Entrepreneurship Foundation, is again hosting Arizona’s Annual entrepreneurship conference to support the organization’s mission of providing training and support to help at-risk youth and adults improve their lives by creating and growing entrepreneurial ventures.
This year’s conference, AZEC10 – The Fifth Annual Arizona Entrepreneurship Conference, will focus on what new entrepreneurs and established business owners alike can do to hit the ‘reset’ button in their businesses and get things growing again.
The full day conference will be held on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at the Desert Willow Conference Center in Phoenix from 8 AM to 7 PM.
Combining national thought leaders and local CEOs in a forum for best practices, networking, and collaboration has been a hallmark of the conference since its inception in 2006 and this year’s conference is no exception with an all star line up including Silicon Valley Venture Capitalist Dave McClure, Technology Analyst Jeremiah Owyang, marketing and online media expert Brain Solis, Flowtown founder Ethan Bloch combined with local leaders from Callaman Ventures, Arizona Angels, Beanstalk CFO, Infusionsoft, Kolbe Corp, EcoEdge, Shwaag.com, Pay Your Family First, BrainSavers, Gangplank, and Pillsbury Winery.
Early Registration Discounts (though October 17th) and tickets are available on the conference website at www.AZEC10.com. Members of the community may also elect to Sponsor a Student or support OTEF and AZEC10 through donations and sponsorships.
“AZEC10 and OTEF’s efforts would not be possible without the ongoing support of our community” stated OTEF Chairman Joan Koerber-Walker. “We are deeply grateful to all of this year’s speakers for their willingness to share their experiences and ideas and to our conference sponsors: the Business Journal Phoenix, Infusionsoft, Stealthmode Partners, Gangplank, AZIPA, Metro Studios, RynoWeb, NetworkingPhoenix.com, and Deru Internet Services along with the many community partners who lend their support year after year.”
