Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2011
Intention Products, distributor of the BrandU® Interprise Business Incubator (Interprise) business training and development program, today announced its upcoming participation in the Enlightened Entrepreneur Summit, to be held in Irvine, CA November 4-6. The event puts world-class business leaders, innovators, thought leaders, marketers, social media experts, market influencers, breakthrough specialists, and potential investors in front of small business owners and entrepreneurs looking for investment capital and sound market advice for growing their businesses.
Interprise is both a sponsor and host for the event’s investor panel, which will include a unique fundRAISE™ pitch session intended to give entrepreneurs the opportunity to actually pitch their business to a panel of experienced entrepreneurs and active investors. Participants will receive feedback on their business ideas and the persuasiveness of the pitch, and advice on how to move the business forward with the best capital sources. Some fundRAISE™ investors may be prepared to make investments on the spot or provide access to extensive contacts in the angel and venture capital communities.
“This is a major opportunity for small businesses to break through to a new level,” says Kim Castle, Intention Products CEO. “And not just BrandU members—any participant can sign up to pitch to investors. We sponsored this panel because funding is the last major piece any business needs to get off the ground, and we are focusing a lot of effort around that to make our Interprise program the single go-to program for any business owner.”
The event builds on BrandU’s recent alliance with Stratacution Ventures, whose CEO, Ryan Kim, will be on hand at the summit along with BrandU’s Head Interprise Coach Paul Finck to work with participants in an intensive “pre-summit” preparatory teleseminar as well as at a live coaching session at the summit for interested participants.
BrandU was invited to participate in a previous Enlightened Entrepreneur Summit in May, where co-creator Kim Castle gave a well-received presentation on brand development. Maria Simone, presenter of the summit, promptly invited her back, impressed by the audience response and the value brought by BrandU’s two decades of experience helping entrepreneurs launch new businesses. Castle will be speaking again at the November summit on the vital need for developing a recognizable brand.
Every business owner needs to know at a deep level what they are about and why they are in business, or their company will look just like everyone else,” says Castle. “Only then can they confidently pitch to investors the value of their business and why they are a solid bet for a sound return on investment. Our Interprise program takes entrepreneurs all the way from raw idea to market and is entirely built on the concept of a unique and solid brand.”
Slots for the fundRAISE™ pitch sessions are limited and interested entrepreneurs are encouraged to register early for the summit and the session, as they are expected to fill quickly. BrandU concludes the summit with a session designed to share the fastest way to launch or grow their businesses.
