Innovation Leadership Forum Presents an Unconference: “How to Become a Great Preneur”

What’s an unconference?

An Unconference combines the level of synergy and excitement present in a good coffee break with the substantive activity and results characteristic of a good meeting. It’s an event where incredible things happen as participants choose the topics and facilitate their own discussions. Ours in focused on becoming a great preneur.

Here is a link to a video about this unique event format: Unconference 101


What’s a preneur?

Preneur is from the French and means “taker” or “one who takes.” It’s become synonymous with taking advantage of or creating an opportunity. Its forms are seemingly endless. A person who takes the risk of starting a business or businesses is called an entrepreneur. An entrepreneurial individual within a large organization is an intrapreneur. Someone within the environmental sector might be an ecopreneur. A good manager can hope to be a manapreneur. You get the idea.

Whatever type of preneur you are or aspire to be, this is the event for you.



What’s in it for you?

That depends on what you put into it, because you and fellow participants determine the discussion and learning topics. For instance, if you are interested in finding out the basics of building preneurial skills, you can post that as a topic and see how many others share your interest. At the very least, you’ll get to explore what other great preneurs have done and how they think; find out what’s on the minds of your colleagues and what piques their curiosity most about preneurship; and hear a keynote address from a rock star of the preneur world.


Stephen Spinelli, PhD, Keynote Speaker: Stephen is President of Philadelphia University and will kick off the conference. He is an entrepreneur with an early and continuing specialty is franchising that began with being a member of the founding team of Jiffy Lube. Stephen Spinelli on LinkedIn
