“The Matrix” Entrepreneur Exchange / Entrepreneur Connection


Urban Entrepreneurship Symposium 2016

Business Matrix Reception

Special Offer for Entrepreneur Service Organizations


The third annual Urban Entrepreneurship Symposium will convene entrepreneurs and thought leaders in business, academia, community organizations, and government in order to promote and facilitate business innovation that improves the quality of life in urban communities. The location and focus of this year’s symposium will be the city of Flint, Michigan. Flint’s widely publicized water crisis has dealt a devastating blow to that city. #UES2016 will focus the best minds in the city, region, and country on applying entrepreneurial innovation to revitalize Flint and similar communities.


A key part of this year’s symposium is the Business Matrix Networking Reception, which will take place on the evening of October 20, 2016, at the beautiful new Flint Farmer’s Market.  This reception will bring together entrepreneurs from Flint, the region, and the state with individuals and organizations that support entrepreneurs. This promises to be a fun and electrically charged evening, and will provide the opportunity for participants to make strong and lasting connections.


We have a special offer for the entrepreneur service organizations who wish to take part in our reception.  We are offering a limited number (10) of tables to organizations who wish to present their services to the Business Matrix Reception attendees.  This offer includes a dedicated “Entrepreneur Exchange” table space (table and 2 chairs) to present literature, product samples, or giveaway items, and covers admission of two staffers to the reception.  These table spaces can be purchased at our event registration site – just click here and follow the instructions to purchase your table space. Each Entrepreneur Exchange participant will receive a one-year listing on the UEI web site that includes company logo, 50 word description, and contact information. Again, the number of tables is limited, and will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.


For those entrepreneur service organizations or individuals who wish to present their services at the reception but don’t wish to purchase a table, we offer another option.  You may display your company’s literature in a common area that will be set up and managed by us, as well as gain admittance to the reception to meet and greet the attendees. The cost of this “Entrepreneur Connection” option, which includes one ticket to the event, is $95.00.  Each Entrepreneur Connection participant will receive a one-year listing on the UEI web site that includes company (or individual) name, 20 word description, and e-mail address. The registration procedure is the same as indicated above.


Note that these special offers are meant to accommodate information exchange between entrepreneur service organizations and our reception attendees. No sales of merchandise or services will be permitted at the reception.


We look forward to seeing you at the Business Matrix Reception, and we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to share information, ideas, and fellowship with our vibrant entrepreneur community.
