SPICE: Speakers Pioneering Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship
Join us in welcoming
Derek Weber, President of goBrandgo!
Entrepreneurially-minded people all have one thing in common...ideas, lots of ideas. In this session, you will learn how to identify which ideas are worth pursuing, how to turn that great concept into a great business, as well as the two things you must master to be a successful entrepreneur.
Over the last decade, Derek has transformed his college t-shirt business into goBrandgo!, one of the nation's leading strategic branding and marketing firms for entrepreneurs. Driven by the success of goBrandgo! and its purpose "To be the Champion of the Every Day Entrepreneur", Weber co-founded the go!-celerator, providing a free furnished apartment, office space, mentoring, and services to young entrepreneurs. Derek lives his go!-Statement, "To Inspire and Influence Positive Change" by sharing his story and lessons learned with entrepreneurs across the country in hopes he can make their journey just a bit easier and even more impactful.
