We know you are an entrepreneur at your core. Our mission is to give you the tools and confidence you need to take your life to the next level. We started Birth to Buyout: The Business Bootcamp because we wanted to empower a new generation of entrepreneurs. We have spent decades working with business people at all levels – we have learned their secrets and tricks, and sometimes witnessed their failures. Every honest entrepreneur we’ve talked to admits they have moments of anxiety, or even terror, because starting a business is hard. But starting and running a successful business is totally doable – we want to show you how. By the end of this single-day boot camp, you will be inspired to chase your dreams with vigor, have a concrete roadmap to get to the next level, know what to do to get funding for your business, and understand that NOW is the time. Our speakers are dynamic, experienced, smart leaders in law and business, and are excited to share what they know with you.
