What is BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton?
BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton is a community made up of Sarasota and Bradenton’s best and brightest. We are dedicated to moving ourselves, our businesses and our local region into a new era of leadership in Florida. We inspire connections… in business, technology, education and other local industries.
We do this because we believe a community based on encouragement, enlightenment and social connection helps everyone find solutions to both the common and uncommon challenges facing our region.
Through our monthly “Lunch-and-Learns” and our “After Hours” social events, our community partnerships, and our semi-annual conferences – we bring together resources like no other group in Southwest Florida. We are people. We are events. We are conversations and connections. We are BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton!
GEW: The Florida Tour
Working with Spark Growth, BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton is excited to be a part of the Florida Tour – an effort to bring awareness to the worldwide effort of entrepreneurial activities that takes place the 3rd week of November.
Founded in 2008, Global Entrepreneurship Week engages millions of people each year in over 125 countries, through almost 34,000 activities with the help of more than 24,000 partner organizations.
This year Spark Growth, with the help of organizations like Grow Florida and our local Economic Development Organizations, as well as tools like the Florida Virtual Entrepreneur Center; hopes to create a greater awareness of this Global Movement and to highlight the growing and flourishing entrepreneurial environment that exists here in Florida.
Across the State there are several anchor events and we are working to help create a cohesive and collaborative message that we, Florida as a State, are developing a flourishing eco-system for entrepreneurs and business growth. That we are a great place to live, raise a family and grow a business with a diversity of cultural microclimates across our state to appeal to many different types of individuals.
We are encouraging organizations to fill out their profile on FLVEC if they have not already done so and to register here for more information about GEW: The Florida Tour as it becomes available in the next couple weeks.
