guHRoo announces the Seventh Annual Growth Summit

 guHRoo has announced the Seventh Annual Growth Summit, which is taking place on October 20-21. The Growth Summit is an event for entrepreneurs that want to grow themselves, their company, and their network. This unique event brings together the most forward-thinking minds in the Southeast to learn from experts on how to better yourself and your business.

The Growth Summit, which is being held at 701 Whaley, has been designed to offer professional growth and networking for local leaders. Fifty percent of ticket sales to the event will be donated to local non-profits.

The upcoming event includes educational sessions, panel conversations, and expert keynotes targeted at helping entrepreneurs grow their company. There will be more than 30 sessions geared towards “wantrepreneurs” (people who are thinking about starting a business), early stage companies, and growth stage companies.

“We created this event to fill the void of networking and educational opportunities for local entrepreneurs and small business leaders. Our challenges are unique. Learning from those who have been where we want to go is paramount to the success of the local economy.” said Matt Vaadi, CEO of guHRoo and creator of the event.

There are many local companies partnering to bring the power of local leaders together for a day they won’t soon forget.

The event is sponsored by partner hosts which include guHRoo, Colite City, McNair Institute for Entrepreneurism and Free Enterprise at the University of South Carolina, GrowCo, and SOCO.
