VenturePop! Conference is the brand new conference for creatives coming to New Orleans this fall. The conference will be held on October 3, 2015 at the Propeller Incubator in New Orleans.
Originally called Pursuit Creative Conference, VenturePop! was designed by a team of locals to support creative entrepreneurs and their ventures. Organizers said the full-day experience is designed specifically for creative professionals to share their passion for creative entrepreneurship, learn about business growth and collaborate with others on the same mission.
Creative business professionals confirmed as speakers include: Chantelle Adams, The Courage Revolution; Cyndie Spiegal, Build It Like a Boss; Lauren Hooker, Elle & Company; Joah Spearman, Localeur; Regina Anaejionu, byRegina; Lianna Patch, The English Maven; Julia Sevin, Upanotch Creative Studio; and Lauren Delaney, L. Delaney.
Graphic designers, web developers, artists, product developers, consultants, writers, independent workers, and creative thinkers are invited to attend.
VenturePop! is organized by business consultant Kristy Oustalet, creative director Justin Shiels, and design studio owner Ciera Holzenthal.
“The three of us came together over the idea that while entrepreneurial resources are prevalent here in New Orleans, not many apply to the creative entrepreneur,” said Sheils. “We want to create something that is bigger than our individual businesses, VenturePop! is a community.”
