Creativity is many things: It’s turning big, new, crazy ideas into a reality, thinking flexibly to find opportunity, and experimenting to leverage what you have and overcome obstacles. It’s countless adventures in learning & re-imagining to craft company culture, built-it-better, and harness the power of “original” to establish a brand that connects. 

It’s hard work…it’s also what keeps most entrepreneurs going. 

We’re bringing together a powerhouse of entrepreneurial leaders from across the spectrum of startup-land to share their truth as they know it about entrepreneurship…and creativity. They’ll each have 4 minutes share a their juicy insights and story on what they have learned in the trenches and how they keep imagining, inventing, growing & thriving. 

The short intro will then lead into a workshop- how to cut through the noise to lead and build using key brainstorming techniques.


We believe in the power of doing. During the second portion the event, we get hands-on. Come ready to dig into the ideas and techniques that foster constructive creativity and an interactive and collaborative experience. SheSays leadership and facilitators will guide the room in a participatory workshop. The goal is to provide tools and structure to unlock your own creativity and bring insight to your next innovation challenge. 

FOOD & DRINKS

Don't worry, we'll have tasty food & drinks on hand to keep your creative juices flowing.
