Conference Season is Here

It’s officially (virtual) Conference Season, and SEED SPOT is excited to represent social-impact driven entrepreneurs at many exciting conferences!

We know, we know… Sometimes, conferences can be a drag. When it comes to conferences focused on startups, innovation, and entrepreneurship, though, they are incredibly exciting!

Being surrounded by visionaries in the startup space is exhilarating, and it provides a break to the often sad news that seems to plague the headlines coming out of every news outlet. Hearing success stories, seeing innovation, and appreciating the hard work of entrepreneurs worldwide is a fantastic experience that should not be missed! 

Be sure to check out the following conferences happening this week, and attend virtually as you can, to see what’s going on in startup hubs around the United States! By the way, you might just catch SEED SPOT team members on various panels throughout the week discussing their experience in the world of entrepreneurship. 

Twin Cities Startup Week 

Kicking off Conference Season is Twin Cities Startup Week! This is an exciting yearly event put on by the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Minneapolis, Minnesota. SEED SPOT has partnered with numerous organizations, including Finnovation Labs, to contribute to the incredible work that entrepreneurs in the Startup Capital of the North have done. SEED SPOT’s very own Lauren McDanell will be speaking at the conference with SEED SPOT Alumni Sheletta Brundage, so be sure to check it out!

DC Retail Summit

It’s a busy week for Lauren McDanell! She will also be presenting on a panel at the DC Retail Summit.

Lauren will be presenting her experience as an entrepreneur and ways in which retail locations can pivot and grow through this economic situation! Register here

These conferences are just a small piece of what the SEED SPOT team is doing this week.
