Upcoming Events

Date: January 25, 2022 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Location: Hybrid (Online and in-person at Pop-Up Peoria)

While Instagram started as a simple photo sharing app, this community of over 1 billion users is now one of the most significant opportunities for businesses to reach new customers, drive sales and collaborate for success. Standing out in this crowded environment and achieving meaningful results, however, requires much more than simply posting some nice photos and hoping for the best. 

Level up your Instagram strategy with expertise from fellow local entrepreneur, Shellie Small, and the Peoria Forward team, a program of the J. Orin Edson Entrepreneurship Institute. Shellie will share how she used Instagram to propel her business, Pinspiration in Peoria, including the foundational elements of a successful strategy, optimizing your account, creating effective posts, and maximizing engagement. Attendees will have an opportunity to join this collaborative discussion as well as connect with fellow entrepreneurs.  

Learning outcomes: By the end of this workshop, attendees will be able to: 

  • Define your target audience 

  • Set meaningful goals and objectives 

  • Track the right performance metrics 

  • Optimize your account 

  • Share high-quality content 

  • Grow and engage your audience 

Who: This event is perfect for all entrepreneurs—artists, retailers, chefs, consultants and beyond—who have an existing business and are looking for opportunities to grow their business. 

Where: Join us in-person at Pop-Up Peoria or online. Details provided upon registration.

Places like ASU provide the right mix of innovative research, supportive programs, and the framework of the entrepreneurial mindset that can launch careers and promote successful new ventures. MedTech is one industry where entrepreneurs are starting some of the most exciting startups. But how do you take what may have started “in the lab” as an interesting research project and turn that into a new venture? ASU’s Venture Devils is kicking off its MedTech seminar series with a panel of entrepreneurs who have started their companies fresh out of University to address exciting new opportunities in medicine, technology, and improving the human condition. You will find out what choices these entrepreneurs have made and the valuable lessons learned along the way. 

This panel discussion will be moderated by Chris Yoo, CEO of Yoo & Co Acelerators. Leveraging over a decade of expertise helping Healthcare and Life Sciences companies bring their technology solutions to market, Yoo & Co. Accelerators now brings that experience and passion directly to more startups attempting to build critical mass in Phoenix, Arizona. Our Mission is to accelerate the readiness of select startups to achieve market success and find the right investors and partners for their business.

Jasmine Bhatti + Ayan Said | Navi Concierge Nurses

Hannah Eherenfeldt | ReSuture
