                                                                  Presented on April 10th,2014

A well tended network can bring you customers, investors, future employees, and game-changing resources and ideas. Entrepreneurs live and die on the strength of their networks, but do you know how to build your network and unlock its latent potential?

In this webinar, serial entrepreneur, conference producer, and “human router” Andy Stoll, will share insight and specific strategies on how to build your network through conference and in-person events. He’ll talk about more than just passing business cards and making small talk and get down to specific tactics to us to get the most out of these events through cultivation of genuine relationships with those who you meet.

Andy Stoll, Seed Here StudioStoll is co-producing EntreFEST, an educational conference for entrepreneurs and innovators (and Iowa’s largest entrepreneurial themed-event) to be held in Iowa City May 14th-16th. He will preview the conference during this webinar and give you some insider tip on how to leverage the conference to build your own entrepreneurial network across the state of Iowa through this event.
