quotation-marks-left“2016 has been the year of conferences for me. I’ve been to half a dozen around the country, and admittedly, I never quite know what I’m getting into before showing up. I knew VenturePop’s marketing looked good and I was incredibly excited to see a handful of the speakers, but I was thrilled to find out that it was absolutely worth every penny. It was such a thoughtful conference. The consideration that went into the speaker line-up, the venue, the surprises throughout the day, and the after party truly brought together an excellent conference of awesome, supportive people. I will definitely be buying a ticket for 2017.” – Chrystina Noel

Through Bashir Wali’s speech, I learned about the connections my business and Provenance Hotels has. I contacted them after the conference, and they commissioned a set of all their hotels from me!”– Sam Randolph, Little Histories

quotation-marks-leftI don’t even know what to say. VenturePop exceeded all my expectations and then slathered those expectations in frosting. It was such a wonderful event. I can’t even say “thank you” because that seems so small compared to how hard you all must have worked to put it together. But thank you. This was one of my favorite events of the year. Can’t wait for next year!” – Angie Green, Studio Storyville
