BE FEARLESS SUMMIT
About the summit
The idea behind Be Fearless Summit stemmed from Alexa Curtis’ experience at many conferences in different cities over the past 5 years. The difference between the Be Fearless summit and regular conferences is that Be Fearless is targeted to a demographic that many of us are still trying to understand: young adults and millennials. Though you hear about us in the media all of the time (who do you think is using Tinder & Postmates 99%?) we’re not being assisted in with planning our futures like we should be. Young people are expected to go to college, graduate and have their lives together: but do you know how many young people don’t know what they want to do with their lives, even after graduating college?
Similar to college career fairs & conferences like Create & Cultivate, we partner with colleges like Drexel University along with select sponsors to help guide young people to be bold and fearless. We give them resources, one-on-one attention from advisors, entrepreneur’s, and other students who have dealt with similar battles (difficulty paying for college, difficulty choosing a degree, fear of failure after college) with the goal that the students will leave feeling empowered and inspired.
Geared towards both young men & women, we anticipate students will leave with knowledge about how likeminded, successful individuals started in their careers. Speakers will range from students with interesting and admirable stories of resilience, to CEOs and marketing professionals at top companies. In the day and age of social media and blogging, the Be Fearless summit helps encourage authenticity, big dreams and doing something outside of the box.
