Tempus Conference for Young Entrepreneurs


This is our 7th Tempus Conference, and we will be offering two tracks this year—one for beginning students who know little or nothing about entrepreneurship and business plans, as well as an advanced track for students who already have some experience.  We’re also going to have sessions focusing on ‘Entrepreneurship for Women’ – to make sure the young women entrepreneurs in our group get their specific questions answered. We’ll have a lot of great speakers and workshops, speed mentoring sessions for advanced students, and a chance to meet successful entrepreneurs from the Philadelphia region. 

Previous presenters have included Jay Coen Gilbert (founder of And One Sneakers and B Corporation), Barbara Chandler Allen and the team from Fresh Artists, a ‘Purpose’ Award winning entrepreneur, Ryan Olson and Raj Singh, both in their early 20’s and serial entrepreneurs now running a $10M Venture Capital fund, Mark Greenberg, the founder of the World Series of Entrepreneurship, Melinda Emerson, SmallBizLady on Twitter, and many others. 

Schools and students need to have an interest in entrepreneurship and be willing to answer a few simple questions in advance by completing the Registration Form, so that we can gauge their experience levels. The location is a short bus ride away from most Philadelphia high schools and a lovely welcoming campus to spend a day at.
