All entrepreneurs should take a little time away from their ventures to see what’s around the corner, but what’s a busy entrepreneur to do? You’re launching a new product, deciding on a marketing plan and trying to get a new CFO hired before the next quarter. But you also need time to brainstorm new ideas, connect with your industry peers around you and get involved with your community at large.

However, you don’t want to waste what precious down time you may have away from the company with a soggy, cafeteria catered sandwich, boring speakers with uninspiring missions and an agenda not catered to your business needs. You need to be stimulated and come away with contacts that will help your company achieve all its goals. So check out this variety of tried and tested conferences and organizations that should help any leader stay motivated.

The Launch/Scale Conference – Noted by CNBC as being a “very insightful” conference, the Launch/Scale Conference gives attendees first hand exposure to the best practices of running a startup.

We force every speaker to come to multiple rehearsals to ensure that their presentations provide massive value. The time each speaker gets on stage is allocated based on their performance in rehearsals, so not a minute is wasted on stage.”

Summit at Sea – Summit at Sea is one of the flagship events of the Summit Series.
