VenturePOP Collaborates with Idea Dinners!

By June 2, 2017 No Comments

I’m sure you’ve heard us say this before: we take pride in knowing that VenturePOP can spark vibrant collaborations that extend well beyond the conference weekend. Well, this year, we’re experiencing that exact phenomenon for ourselves.

The VenturePOP Team is excited to announce our new collaboration with Idea Dinners and expanding our programming to kick things off on Friday night!

Idea Dinners is a Florida-based venture that connects innovators and entrepreneurs over creative dining events to form intimate connections and build community. They pair dinner guests to create opportunities for meaningful conversation.

Attendees can connect with like-minded creatives in a fun and supportive atmosphere. More than just a dining experience, Idea Dinners creates a format for entrepreneurs and creatives to share their stories through food and interactive elements.

So if you simply can’t wait till Saturday morning, want to meet up with some cool new peeps over a great meal, or if walking into a room of 200 new people makes you want to break out in hives…. Join us!

This dinner will be held the night before the conference (Friday, September 29th) at Mimi’s in the Marigny and is available as an upgrade exclusively to those who purchase a ticket to the VenturePOP 2017 Conference.

The event includes a custom four-course tapas style menu by chef Heathcliff Hailey. Hailey, a Louisiana native, takes great pride in his farm-to-table tapas creations with an eclectic array of ingredients. The dinner will feature his famous “trust me,” dish, using fresh herbs and produce picked from Louisiana farms.
