The B.I.G.* Summit is a premier event for Business Innovation and Growth, attracting entrepreneurs and business leaders from across Central Florida. This powerful day of learning, idea sharing, discussing new opportunities and forging new business relationships is about building a strong and vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem right here in our region. What better way to grow your business than to connect with your peers who have been there and done that.
