Event description

Description

What to Expect:

  • Join us for an entrepreneurship bootcamp featuring a fireside chat on workplace culture and interactive workshop sessions

  • Roll up your sleeves with founders, seasoned entrepreneurs and leadership coaches to tackle important challenges facing your business – from marketing, to financing, to culture and brand building

  • Participate in a live recording of eBay and Gimlet Creative’s Open for Business podcast, rated one of the top business podcasts on iTunes

  • Network and connect with small business experts and fellow entrepreneurs

*Note: This is not an official SXSW event and a SXSW badge is not required to attend this event.

Every entrepreneur, small business or startup must navigate hundreds of tough choices and questions when building a business. How do you bring a new product or service to market? How do you hire the right people and create a winning workplace culture? How do you stand out against the competition? And, what’s the best way to finance the whole pursuit?

While it can be lonely at the top, the real-world advice you receive and the relationships you forge can be one of the most important factors in determining success. To give your entrepreneurial IQ a workout and connect you with other likeminded entrepreneurs, eBay and podcast pioneer Gimlet Creative invite you to attend the first ever Open for Business Bootcamp.

Designed for anyone building a business from the ground up, the bootcamp will bring together leaders and experts from across the entrepreneurship community. You’ll have the chance to hear from and interact with people who have been through it - to learn from their experiences and hear their advice about the stuff no one tells you, the stuff you wish you knew and the stuff you should know when starting or running a business.

The bootcamp will kick off with an interactive discussion and live podcast recording about “How to Create and Scale a Workplace Culture.”

Moderated by Open for Business host and entrepreneur John Henry, the discussion will feature:

  • Jerry Colonna, venture capitalist and award-winning leadership coach to startup and established CEOs

  • Patty McCord, workplace expert and former culture creator at Netflix; advisor to growing brands like Warby Parker and Harry’s Grooming

  • Corri McFadden, founder of successful fashion business eDrop-Off and eBay seller; featured in Forbes and Elle

This session will be featured in Season 2 of the Open for Business podcast – which reached No. 1 on iTunes for business podcasts in its first season.

Immediately following, you will have the chance to roll up your sleeves and rotate through multiple interactive breakout sessions with other entrepreneurs in attendance. Each session is geared around a different aspect of building a successful business and will be led by a small business expert or business leader.

After the interactive bootcamp, we invite you to join us for a networking happy hour and light bites to meet and mingle with the panelists, breakout session leaders and fellow entrepreneurs and small business leaders.
