This Friday (3/6/15) is the first annual Gasparilla Interactive Festival. My business friend and fellow AAF-Tampa Bay board member, Vinny Tafuro of Conscious Capitalism Florida, is the executive director of this event and it’s great to see this seed of an idea come to life! The event will bring together thought leaders and influencers in entrepreneurship, technology, digital innovation, interactive media, and more. The inaugural event is off to a great start with interesting speakers flying in from across the country.
I’ll be speaking in a round table discussion focused on: Women and Millennials as Entrepreneurs and Innovators, and will be joined by the following dynamic women: Savannah Peterson, Global Community Manager at Shapeways; Riva-Melissa Tez, founder of Berlin Singularity; Joanna Lord, Vice President of Marketing at Porch; and Kate Whatley, co-founder and CEO of Social Forces.
The launch of this event reminds of dreaming big (like SHE, Style Hunt Events) and how little ideas can come to life.
What ideas are you mulling over for your business? Life? Worried about failing? Definitely hope not, as it’s already a win if you try! What can you do to push your ideas forward?
Hope to see you at the GIF event!
