Imagine getting your questions answered face-to-face by industry experts who have the resources you need to succeed and who have the willingness to share what they know. Imagine hands-on learning opportunities on business plans, financing, real estate, social media, mobile technology, cyber security and more. And finally imagine that you can access this information free of charge all year long.
