Flourish Media Conference to connect women high-growth entrepreneurs and business owners with
willing investors, in doing so, fueling innovation and driving economic growth

MIAMI, FL (Dec. 29, 2016) – Flourish Media Conference (FMC), in partnership with Florida International University, is excited to announce its inaugural Flourish Media Conference: Where Women Do Business.
FMC is the only media conference with business funding for female entrepreneurs and business owners, offering them the opportunity to learn about branding, visibility, and funding from investors, through interactive workshops and panel discussions. The two-day conference will take place February 3rd-4th, 2017 at Florida International University inside the Graham Center Ballroom.

“We are so excited to kick-off our first-ever Flourish Media Conference in South Florida, home to an incredible wealth of start-up business ventures, minority female entrepreneurs, and a growing population of business investors,” says Vivian Olodun. “Our goal is to prepare conference attendees with the knowledge, resources, and more importantly, access to willing investors, to help close the hugely disproportional female funding gap and underrepresentation of women of color in high-growth start-up industries. This conference presents the perfect opportunity to do just that!”
The two-day Flourish Media Conference offers guest lectures and workshops in two tracks. During both tracks, guests will have the opportunity to engage with successful female business owners and attend workshops with industry professionals to help propel their business to the next level. Saturday’s VIP conference attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to LIVE PITCH to investors for the chance to walk away with up to $15 MILLION for their business ventures!

FMC’s guest speakers range from bloggers, social media influencers, entrepreneurs, and those operating in the business finance sector, who will share insider’s knowledge on how to successfully create a brand that is attractive to investors and how to receive compensation for their efforts. Notable guest speakers scheduled to attend this year’s conference include Tracy Timberlake, YouTube vlogger turned six-figure video marketing strategist, who will teach conference attendees video hacks that can transform their personal branding into guru-status; and Lila Nikole, business owner and swimwear
designer whose work has been featured on major media outlets including BET and VH1, Mercedes Benz Swim Week, and worn by some of the hottest pop stars and socialites. Lila will share personal knowledge and key insight on the strategies behind building a successful brand.
