VenturePOP is a 2-day experience for someone, just like you, to share your passion for creative entrepreneurship with others on the same mission.
Let’s face it, when you’re calling all the shots it can be incredibly difficult to map out a clear course and confidently stick to a game plan. Insights from our experienced speakers and panelists will leave you with a fresh perspective and reinvigorate you to take action. By connecting with our community of ambitious creative types, you’ll always have a crew to hold you accountable and have your back while tackling your greatest business and personal goals.
OUR CORE VALUES
All of our planning is based on 3 core principles: Inspiration, Community, and Education. We think these three values are truly needed to keep your business on track.
Investing money in these three core concepts is where it really counts in your business and can make the biggest difference all year long.
It’s time to shake things up, get fired up and reconnected to WHY you did the work, started your business, and took this unconventional road in the first place.
Welcome to a room full of future friends. VenturePOP Conference offers friends with the same interests, ambition, and out-of-box thinking. Business buds who understand the agony of customer issues, the uncertainty of a varying income, and you don’t need to explain what a target market is.
Nothing compares to in-person training. Experts from across the US will take the VenturePOP stage to teach accelerator courses in branding, pricing + value, community building and goal setting… just to name a few.
15 years ago we met as two shy teens at an arts intensive high school (New Orleans Center for Creative Arts). That was our first true taste of being surrounded by other like minded and ambitious creatives… That experience shaped us both in ways we wouldn’t really know until much later.
After college, Ciera lived in Boston and Kristy moved to Chicago for a few years until we individually made our way back to New Orleans with a new-found love for our hometown and the robust support for entrepreneurship. Five years ago, we began planning local monthly meet-ups and over time the concept flourished into the two-day celebration of the creative industry that you see today.
Together, we committed to designing an event and year-round community based on what we believe to be the three key components of amplifying your business: Inspiration, Community, and Education.
Our hope is that you get inspired, leave reinvigorated, and continue to stay connected to creative game-changers.
