Fireside Chat Series – Purpose First Entrepreneurship

Thursday, October 26, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free – $150.00

Welcome to the First of our Fireside Chat series, intimate evenings featuring an in-depth conversation with a Chicagoland business leader facilitated by an EFBC Strategic Partner. Our Fireside Chats are limited to just 40 participants to generate conversation and connections that extend a level deeper. 

Join us on Thursday, October 26th at Morton Arboretum Founder’s Room to be reminded of the opportunities we all have as entrepreneurs – and as humans – to build better businesses. Join Strategic Partner Patty Rioux as she sits down with survivor, entrepreneur and venture investor Pete Wilkins. Author of Purpose First Entrepreneur, Pete shares how he learned to grow his entrepreneurial spirit and dedicate his life to the pursuit of his own purpose.  

“Pete serves up a robust shot of punch-doubt-in-the-face inspiration to fire you up and a steady dose of practical guidance needed to build a kick-ass start-up that transforms the world...and you in the process.” -- purposefirstentrepreneur.com
