TiEconFL: World-class Speakers & Mindshare

Have you seen the #TiEconFL 2016’s speakers?

And by seen, we don’t just mean on the TiEconFL website; we mean on the wider internet too. When you do check them out, you will be as excited about TiEconFL as we are!

To describe this year’s speakers as world-class is an understatement. When we consider the insights and experience of the thought leaders presenting and participating in panel discussions, in an intimate setting such as TiEconFL, the sense of privilege really settles in.

Why do they give their time? Because they share in the belief that fostering entrepreneurship is how we create and expand opportunity, and because they know that TiEconFL attendees work every day with entrepreneurial passion to make a difference through business. Getting that amount of fire and drive in one room is special in its own right.

We invite you to listen to the speakers’ podcasts, TED talks, and YouTube shares, and to read their blogs. What questions do they bring up about your own field or current mission? Do you have a question or idea that could lead to meaningful mindshare this October 15th? We know you do, and we can’t wait for the conversations, and possibilities that result.

Grab a cup of your favorite drink and cue up a few talks. We’ve shared some great links here for you. Visit the Speakers page of the TiEconFL website to get to know ALL the speakers, and follow our Twitter and Facebook posts for links to more great content from our speakers and panelists.
