A session at the inaugural EnterCircle Summit in 2021.

People thinking about taking the entrepreneurial plunge can soak up three days of information, connections and inspiration at EnterCircle Summit 2022 Nov. 16-18. The event, sponsored by the Sapna Foundation, will be held at the link in Nocatee.

Raghu Misra, founder of the Sapna Foundation and a serial entrepreneur, said the theme of this year’s EnterCircle Summit is Resilient Leadership and will have a special focus on women entrepreneurs to coincide with Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Nov. 19.

The three-day event will feature sessions for youth entrepreneurs, start-ups and new business and women entrepreneurs with over 35 speakers over the course of the summit.

The summit culminates Nov. 18 with Women’s Entrepreneurship Day celebration with panel discussions on Women in Politics, Women Entrepreneurs and Women in Sports.

Misra said there will be an emphasis on young entrepreneurs with students from area schools attending.

“Just for this year we are going to have a lot of high school kids coming,” he said.

Last year’s inaugural summit attracted more than 250 attendees and featured more than 10 startup pitches and included representatives from public, private, non-profit and education sectors.

With the wide variety of sessions and topics, Misra said budding entrepreneurs and other interested business owners and community leaders will have plenty to choose from on the agenda.

“Depending on what their demographic is, they can look at the Entercircle.Zone website and see what piques their interest,” he said. “They can come and learn and mingle with fellow entrepreneurs.”
