The program showcases some of today’s innovative young business leaders who have harnessed the power of technology, collaboration, creativity, and knowledge of social impact to create markets, products, and services for the current times while they impact bottom lines. Eight forward-thinking for-profit and non-profit business owners will present firsthand experience and keys to success that can be applied to any existing or startup organization.
Keynote Speaker, Julie Smolyansky, CEO of Lifeway Foods, at 37 is the youngest female CEO of a publicly held firm. Since assuming the role of CEO in 2002, she has grown the company’s revenues from $12 million to $80 million. Mother of two young girls, she exemplifies young entrepreneurs who have successfully learned how to balance a fast-paced business career while raising children and giving back philanthropically.
Guests will hear from two diverse panels: Emerging Entrepreneurs, and How to Start, Sustain and Succeed. Leading-edge industries including technology, consulting, ice cream, eco-friendly products, clothing and accessories, concierge services, social impact, and others will be represented.
