Join us in Chicago to expand your network   and your mind!

Entrepreneurs are born, not made: Do you believe that’s true, or not? Join Inc. editor James Ledbetter, four nationally recognized experts on entrepreneurship, Salesforce executives, and local business leaders for a lively debate about what makes successful founders tick—and what that means for your business. Two teams of debaters will lay out the case on either side of the proposition that entrepreneurial talent is inborn and can’t be taught. The winning side will be the one that changes the most minds in the audience. Afterwards, enjoy conversations, cocktails, and hors d’ oeuvres as you share your own views with Ledbetter, the debaters, and your fellow entrepreneurs. Join us on August 31 at Chicago’s innovation hub, 1871 – and come away inspired, smarter, and better connected.
