Morning Session - LGBT Start-Up Forum:
8:30am to 12:00pm on Monday, April 20, 2015.
As an LGBT entrepreneur you will face adversity your straight counterparts will not. This forum will lay the foundation of the history of LGBT people in business and advertising, while providing real life suggestions for how you can leverage your unique LGBT identity in your marketing. Discover how to move past the belief that the LGBT community is monolithic and shift your focus toward how you can uniquely market to individual subsegments of the community. You'll learn why an integrated and inclusive marketing approach that is authentic to you, is your best marketing asset. You'll also learn strategic ways to grow your start-up through strategic delegation and leveraging technology resources.
