Calling All Entrepreneurs: Connect with Investors and Pitch Your Idea

6 comments

It’s game time entrepreneurs!

If you are an entrepreneur or an aspiring one, then your World Cup has arrived.

Some of the biggest challenges I hear entrepreneurs face include:

1.  Funding – If they don’t know how to bootstrap it then they want to figure out how to receive and investment or be able to pitch to investors.

2.  Attention – Marketing, PR, publicity and getting the word out about their product or service.

3.  Team – Having the right players on board can make or break the company, so it’s all about the team.

Obviously there are many other things to consider like distribution, customer service, etc, but I hear a lot of entrepreneurs talk about money, marketing, and finding the right team members.

Wouldn’t it be nice if entrepreneurs could receive the investment, know how to market their idea, and find the best team members all in one place?

You are in luck entrepreneurs as the Perfect Business Summit is starting October 7th in Las Vegas and you have the opportunity to find everything you need to make your start up idea or company a huge success.

Dan Bliss and his team put together one of the best conferences I have ever attended last year and Sir Richard Branson gave an amazing keynote speech.

This year Dan has done it again bringing in a handful of uber successful entrepreneurs.

Just to get you ready for an unforgettable weekend, here are just a few of the speakers presenting this year:

John Paul DeJoria
Founder – Paul Mitchell & Patron Tequila

John Paul DeJoria is one of America’s greatest success stories. He is a former homeless person who amassed a $4 billion fortune. With a business partner, he launched John Paul Mitchell Systems on a shoestring budget and built the company to more than $1 billion in annual sales. He later co-founded Patron Spirits Company, which also generates more than $1 billion in sales. John Paul was a founding partner in House of Blues, and he maintains interest in a number of other companies.

Gavin Maloof
Owner – Palms Casino & NBA’s Sacramento Kings

Gavin Maloof and his family built and operate the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. His family also owns the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, which is controlled by Gavin and his brother Joe. The Maloofs are actively involved in beer distribution, entertainment production and music. Gavin and Joe also jumped into the skateboarding world by forming the Maloof Money Cup, which is the world’s richest skateboarding competition.

Tony Hsieh
CEO – Zappos; Author – #1 NY Times Bestseller “Delivering Happiness”

In 1999, at the age of 24, Tony Hsieh (pronounced “Shay”) sold LinkExchange, the company he co-founded, to Microsoft for $265 million. He then joined Zappos as an advisor and investor, and eventually became CEO, where he helped Zappos grow from almost no sales to over $1 billion in gross merchandise sales annually, while simultaneously making Fortune Magazine’s annual Best Companies to Work For list. In November 2009, Zappos was acquired by Amazon.com in a deal valued at $1.2 billion on the day of closing.

There are a ton of other great speakers including friends Shira Lazar, and Michael Schneider of Mobile Rodie.

If you have ever played in a big championship game in sports, then you get the same feeling during this entire event.  Everyone you connect with has the potential to enhance your business as it seems like every other person is an investor, or an entrepreneur who has sold a few companies for over 10 million already.

It’s a game changer for those that attend, and if you enter the discount code “HOWES” when you sign up you will save $50 on conference tickets, and $10 on pitches.

Go here to register as this is a weekend event you won’t want to miss out.  See you in Vegas!
