Inaugural ‘Focus on Entrepreneurs Conference’ Event Coming to Clearwater Beach, April 2017

Hundreds to attend destination conference event designed for entrepreneurs of all kinds

Clearwater Beach, FL — Twenty-seven million working-age Americans will start or run new businesses in 2017, according to a recent study by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM). Though, statistics predict many of these businesses will not survive. On a mission to beat this statistic, a committee of seasoned local businessmen and women developed the inaugural Focus on Entrepreneurs Conference to be held on Florida’s Clearwater Beach on April 27-28, 2017.

The Focus on Entrepreneurs Conference will attract nearly 500 business leaders from a variety of industries. Labeled as “the ultimate un-conference,” the productive two-day event will offer collaboration, innovation, and strategy in additional to providing participants a valuable network of like-minded professionals and advisors for peer-to-peer mentoring beyond this unique event.
