This conference is being designed for both established businesses and new start-ups – including someone who is just thinking about starting a business. The purpose of the conference is to provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs and small businesses to build the skills they need to make their businesses succeed and to network with other small business owners, and business advisors.   A small business owner wears many hats – not only do they need to be the CEO, they need to hire, train, market, finance – the list goes on.

This conference is not just limited to those who live in the Ely area.  We are extending our invitation to anyone who is looking to make powerful connections on the Iron Range and Northeastern Minnesota.  We hope you will join us!

We surveyed our attendee’s after last year’s conference and 97% said the conference covered topics that were important to them.  And a staggering 98% said they would recommend this conference to other businesses.

Attendees said it best:

“Great work in getting knowledgeable, reputable go-getters in one room!”

“The panelists’ stories were inspirational and motivated me to be courageous enough to follow my dream!”

The conference is a collaborative effort between Incredible Ely, The University of Minnesota-Duluth Center for Economic Development and The Entrepreneur Fund.

Sponsorship and Underwriting Support:

We are currently in the process of securing funding partners and sponsors.  We have entry level support starting at $250, premiere levels upwards of $10,000 and many options in between.  We can look at customizing opportunities that make sense for your goals.  And by becoming a sponsor, you are showing support for our small business owners and you are gaining potential clients and partners within our communities.
