We know that being an entrepreneur in 2018 is a demanding job. You have to be woke, you have to be in the loop, and you have to be on the scene at all times. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back at Baller Alert. These are the top 5 conferences for creative entrepreneurs to attend this year.
1. BlogHer Conference
January 30 – 31, 2018 in New York City.
This conference is all about girl power and providing women with a positive network of women in the field. Often times women struggle in silence, but in this group, you’ll always have support from like-minded women like yourself.
2. Well Read Black Girls Festival
Pending dates in Brooklyn, New York.
This festival started out as a simple kickstarter campaign and now it is attracting well-known actors and writers. The event is also a time for the black female community to connect and teach younger girls how to network.
March 8 – 17, 2018 in Austin, Texas.
It is an interactive music, film, and tech festival with creative programming for all. There are a slew of events hosted in different venues all over the city of Austin. Keynote speakers, performances by your favorite artists, and a bunch of free merchandise, you can only imagine how much networking can be done here.
4. Cherry On Top Marfa
August 16 – 19, 2018 in Marfa Texas.
A non-profit coalition of female producers come together for one weekend for a creative event. The events are decked with activities. Last year, there were film screenings, yoga, mixers, and more!
5. A3C (All 3 Coasts)
October 3 – 7, 2018 in Atlanta Georgia.
All 3 Coasts is a festival of all sorts just like SXSW, but it happens on the other side of the country and in the hearty streets of Atlanta. At A3C, celebrities pave the sidewalks next to their fans. If you want to have a ton of fun and get your networking on, this is the place to be.
Have you attended any of these conferences? What was your favorite?
