Accelerate Business Summit
Accelerate Your Business ideas
February 24, 2024  ·  Yvonne Scarlet Golden Community Center
8:00 AM - 3:30 PM (ET)

The City of Daytona Beach has launched the first Business Summit in history! The Accelerate Summit is more than just a gathering; it's a launchpad designed to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit within our community. Our goal is to provide a day rich with resources, insights, and inspiration, helping attendees to move closer to realizing their business aspirations.

We are excited to include a "Taste of Daytona Beach" segment, showcasing local restaurants and celebrating small business ventures within our city. This addition underscores our commitment to supporting and highlighting local entrepreneurs.

We will be giving out several prizes and opportunities to attendees!

At the conclusion of the summit, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a "Pitch Your Idea" competition, offering them a chance to win prizes that could significantly assist in offsetting the costs of starting or growing their businesses.
