In one inspiring day, Entrepreneur brings together an incredible group of influencers and innovators to share their unfiltered, unconventional and unexpected insights into what it takes to launch, sustain and grow a business.
Includes the above plus a private VIP whisky tasting with appetizers and networking.
Retired Racecar Driver, GoDaddy Entrepreneur
Danica Patrick is an iconic role model -- she's the only woman to have led laps at both the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500 (and one of 14 drivers to have done it). She is the only woman to have won an IndyCar race and the only woman to have won the Pole in NASCAR's Daytona 500. She's on TIME magazine's list of Most Influential people ... chances are you've seen her on the track, or in one of her record-setting 13 GoDaddy Super Bowl commercials. Earlier this year, she drove the final race of her career at the Indy 500 and is now focusing full-time on her entrepreneurial goals, (having already written a health and fitness book, launched an apparel line and opened her own vineyard).
Grand Slam Tennis Champion & Entrepreneur
Maria Sharapova is a five-time Grand Slam international tennis champion and an Olympic silver medalist. She is just one of a handful of players to hold all four Grand Slam titles – Wimbledon (2004), US Open (2006), Australian Open (2008), and Roland Garros (2012, 2014). She has held the World No.1 ranking for 21 weeks and has won 35 singles titles in her career.
As an international icon, Maria serves as an ambassador to many of the world’s top luxury brands and a number of Fortune 500 companies including Porsche, Nike, Evian and HEAD. Her business interests also include serving as founder and creative director of her own candy company, Sugarpova, as well as serving as an equity partner in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), the fastest growing sports organization in the world; and Supergoop!, a skincare company.
Overlooking the beautiful Brooklyn, NY waterfront, Entrepreneur will takeover the industrial space at 1 Hotel Brooklyn for a day of inspiring keynote speakers and panel discussions that will deliver the motivational and practical advice you seek.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to pitch their business for a chance to be casted on Season 4 of the hit series Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch. And exclusively designed networking areas will create opportunities for you to meet one another and develop your next great partnership.
