America Means Business

Isolated as so many of us are behind our computer screens or in our social media bubbles these days, it's interesting to see how in-person networking events are multiplying and changing.

I've noticed, and this is purely anecdotal so take it with a large helping of salt, that when people do get together in person, it has become more special. It's not necessarily a common thing anymore, so what would be routine gatherings are ramped up to become "landmark events" and mega-conferences.

Here's one on entrepreneurship that you may want to make plans to attend, particularly if you're on the East Coast. To take place in New York City on June 13 - 15, 2012, America Means Business will be packed with educational, networking and social events that will "show you how to bring your dream to life."

Here's how the organization describes the event, where registration is free through May 25 and $10 thereafter:

America Means Business will feature dozens of inspirational keynotes, informative panel discussions, “How I Did It” case studies, basic startup education by SCORE, networking opportunities, an exposition, and many other events about how to start and grow a business and everything in between. 


  1. The CEO of my company, VerticalResponse, is on the advisory board for this event and we really look forward to attending – it looks like there will be a lot going on. I like that it's free or 10 bucks; so many events charge an arm and a leg, which most small businesses can't afford. Cheers!

  2. Agreed, Connie, with the price so low it's really going to reach the people who need the information most.
