    Receive practical insights and actionable advice on relevant business topics in this half day symposium held at the LFCC Fauquier Campus.

    This highly interactive and relational event features networking opportunities and three learning tracks, each geared toward business owners at varying stages of their business development cycle. Whether you are a would-be entrepreneur, a fledgling business, or a well-established business, you will find value in attending.

    Throughout the morning, join our speakers at the "Happiness Bar" (a networking opportunity in the Rose Loeb Student Center at LFCC) where attendees can meet 1:1 with event speakers to ask questions and make valuable connections. Table sponsors will also be stationed in the Loeb Center, and attendees are invited to use the morning to create new relationships with sponsors and each other that will benefit their businesses. 

    Make connections with other business owners, create new relationships, and and take action to build greater success in your business.

     

    CALL FOR SPEAKERS


    We are actively seeking speakers on a variety of topics and a diverse speaker pool for our second annual Micro Enterprise Symposium! Do you have a value driven and dynamic topic to share that attendees can use to impact their business in a positive way?

    Our audience is made up of micro business owners (5 employees or less) at varying stages of their business development cycle. Our attendees are all looking to take it to the next level, and will attend our event to receive practical, actionable advice to implement in their real-life business situations. We want topics and speakers that deliver high value insights and advice that propel the audience to take immediate action on their dreams and goals.

    Track 1: Turning your Passion into a Business

    Whether you are just thinking about starting a business or you have only just begun, this track is for you.

    Track 2: Moving from Startup to Stable

    If you've been in business for a few years, but feel like you may still be missing some of the foundational pieces that can create more stability and profitability in your business, you'll find value in these sessions.

    Track 3: Next Level Business

    This track offers insights and practical advice for veteran business owners who seek to scale or expand their business beyond the "micro-business" level. Are you ready to level up?
