Bermuda Entrepreneurship Summit 
Hamilton Princess | November 21, 2019
The Bermuda Entrepreneurship Summit
Connect with hundreds of the island’s top small business owners and corporate “intrapreneurs” while learning from top thought leaders in personal branding, networking, time management, health and wellness, digital marketing, and more. 
Dear Small Business Owners and Corporate "Intrapreneurs"
If you're looking to increase revenue, develop your business online and internationally,  and go from running a niche business in Bermuda to establishing a globally-recognized brand, then #BES2019 will help you scale your operations, make more sales, and learn the skills necessary to stand out from the competition.

Entrepreneurship is a mindset, so regardless of whether you currently run your own company, or you're working for one of the large corporations on the island currently, the innovative content we will cover during this all-day, executive-level conference will give you the confidence you need to command a higher salary, manage your time and energy more effectively, and become well-known for your work

You do not want to miss the first-ever Bermuda Entrepreneurship Summit! In fact, we sold out of Early Bird tickets even before we publicly announced this forum (and the remaining seats will sell out, too!), so register now to ensure that you can learn from the world-class speakers from across Bermuda and North America that are collaborating with us to bring you the most valuable experience you'll have this year. 

We believe so strongly that you will make meaningful new connections and receive dozens of massive, immediately applicable ideas for growing your business and/or taking your career to the next level that we're providing a "More Than Money Back" guarantee! If you decide to invest in yourself and attend this summit, and don't feel like you've received a positive ROI after the first few hours of #BES2019, then we will refund you entirely AND write a check, in your name, to your favorite charity. But, think of it this way...

What's a new client worth to your business? If you could save even a few hours of your time each week, or learned a handful of techniques for managing your energy levels when things get busy, then this experience will more than pay for itself! If you have any doubts or concerns that you won't benefit from #BES2019, then please contact us before saying "no" to this opportunity without getting all the information. 

Otherwise, we hope to see you at the Hamilton Princess on Thursday, November 21 for this celebration of entrepreneurship during 2019's Global Entrepreneurship Week in Bermuda!

Who Is This Experience For?
This is a "can't miss" opportunity for you if you...
  • Run a small business in Bermuda and are looking to expand internationally and/or through increased online sales.
  • Want to learn more about local resources you can take advantage of when it comes to funding, marketing, hiring for, managing, and promoting your business. 
  • ​Want to create a podcast, write a book, give a TED talk, or otherwise become a "thought leader" in your industry.
  •  Don't yet have a strong network across Bermuda's business community and want to meet potential new clients, mentors, partners, vendors, and local influencers.
  •  Want to invest in your team's professional development and decide to not only register yourself for this experience, but bring your entire team with you so you're able to create a cultural shift in your organization. 
  •  Provide business services and want to not only meet new prospects, but learn from successful entrepreneurs who are running successful practices in Bermuda, the US, etc. 
  •  Understand that investing in yourself is the fastest path to achieving your career goals, even if its intimidating to be in a room with hundreds of professionals or you're not used to attending these type of high-level events (yet). 
    Who Is This NOT For?
    Although we protect your investment with a "More Than Money Back" guarantee that you won't find anywhere else, we'd rather you stay at home if...
    • You do NOT want to start your own business, develop a profitable "side hustle", or wish to earn a raise or promotion in your day job in the next two years. 
    • You do not actively want to work on your professional skills, mindsets, or networking (even if it will ultimately provide you with the ability to earn more money and do work you love). 
    • ​You are looking to pitch your products or services to other attendees without taking an interest in their success or building long-term relationships with others.
    • You can't afford to invest in attending the summit without going into credit card debt. 
    •  You have zero interest in business, entrepreneurship, or meeting other high-achieving corporate "intrapreneurs".
    •  You're unable to attend at least 80% of the sessions listed in our summit agenda.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    I've only recently launched my business, and I'm currently working a 9-to-5 job. Should I still attend? 
    Yes! An experience like this could not only introduce you to new peers, mentors, clients, press contacts, and others, but you will save thousands of dollars (at least!) and countless hours in starting your company with the expert advice you'll receive from our keynote speakers.  Plus, we want to celebrate you taking the first step in your entrepreneurial journey. What better place than a summit dedicated to YOU!
    What if I register for a ticket, then end up having to travel (or don't yet know if I'll be in town for #BES2019)?
    Seats are limited for this experience, so book your ticket now, and if you end up traveling for work when we are hosting the summit, you can transfer your ticket to a friend or colleague.
    Do you offer corporate discounts?
    If you would like to register for five (5) or more tickets so that you and your team can attend the summit together, or so you can gift tickets to your clients, we would be happy to accommodate you! Please email contact@BermudaEntrepreneurshipSummit.com. 
    Who else is attending?
    Past events we've hosted in Bermuda have attracted attendees including high-ranking members of government, C-suite and SVP-level corporate executives, owners of small and medium businesses, members of local media outlets, and international attendees who fly in from around the world to visit the island. Our Early Bird tickets sold out to an extremely diverse crowd, and so we are excited to introduce you to people you may NOT already know, despite how connected the Bermudian business community is already.
