50 Entrepreneurial Events to Mark on Your Calendar

by Under 30 CEO

No entrepreneur can ascend all the way to the top without some help.

Whether it’s from an investor with additional funding or a mentor to help overcome some of the more strenuous developments, entrepreneurs need a support network. Matt Wilson of Under30CEO.com has compiled a list of the best events for budding entrepreneurs to attend. Here are his top four selections:

  • CEO National – This Chicago-based conference draws a college-aged crowd of attendees under the common flag of entrepreneurship.
  • SXSW – A mainstay on the technology, networking, music and entrepreneur scene, SXSW is filled with workshops and keynotes. A great event to attend, if you can find a place to stay in Austin, Texas.
  • Big Omaha – Touted as SXSW without the hype by Wilson, this event applies the meat and potatoes approach to SXSW’s model (the location of the event is derived from its namesake).
  • Startup Weekend – For those people that are interested in launching a business over the course of a weekend, this event is for you. It’s all about hacking together a business with like-minded peers in the smallest window possible.
