We are very excited to host VenturePop 2017, the third-annual creative entrepreneur conference in New Orleans. We invite proposals from creative entrepreneurs, visual artists, illustrators, designers, photographers, bloggers, coaches, writers, and makers that have ditched the 9-5 and are making a living from their passion.

Our participants are looking to be inspired, but more importantly, they want to leave the conference with tangible next steps to help grow their creative businesses.

If you’re unsure whether or not you’d be a good fit, ask yourself these 3 questions:

  • Am I personally a small business ‘success story’, have a small business that directly helps freelancers and creative entrepreneurs, or an expert in a topic that would positively impact the way a creative entrepreneur does business daily?
  • Do I have speaking experience or can comfortably craft and deliver a presentation that is engaging, relatable, and inspire action?
  • Is my WHY for wanting to speak is in-line with the VenturePOP mission and serving our amazing community of ambitious attendees?

If you answered ‘yes’ to all three of these Qu’s, please take a minute to fill out our speaker application below – we’re super excited to dive into what you’d like to share!

Submissions close March 1, 2017 at 5:00 pm CST.

Please keep in mind, since we receive so many submissions we can only respond to those who are the best match for our event.  We typically book speakers over the course of 3 rounds starting in January and continuing through Summer.
