Attendees Rave About Consero

  • Very informative and valuable for making new connections in the IP Enforcement space.
    Eric Gelwicks
    Live Nation Merchandise, Inc.
  • Consero is one of my favorite conferences to attend. The epitome of an intimate gathering of Brand Protection leaders from all fields, joining together to share best practices (without the hard sales pitch pressure from vendor sponsors).
    Chris Gibbins
    Speck Products
  • Every time I attend a Consero conference, I walk away with great conversation and new friends. It's one of the few conferences I go to for business and pleasure.
    Ben ​Congleton

  • Startup Acceleration was a tremendous experience. I was among a select group of inspiring founders and leaders who shared unique approaches to their startups and the successes and challenges they’ve experienced ... If you’re leading a startup, don’t miss this one—this group will inspire and move you forward in ways you can’t imagine.

  • Sometimes it’s helpful to get out of the echo chamber of the office and exchange ideas with others who are struggling (or have struggled) with the same issues in running a startup. Consero’s startup forum provides that opportunity. Many entrepreneurs will find that 48 hours away from the office is just what the doctor ordered and will find themselves energized upon their return.

  • I found the Consero Startup event incredibly valuable and a great investment of my time. As a first time entrepreneur to have the opportunity to learn from so many other entrepreneurs of varying experience levels was priceless. Just to know that what I had been going through was normal gave me huge encouragement, and I made a ton of great new connections.
    Grant Elliott
    Ostendio
  • Being a part of a community where peers are working with their peers and going through the same challenges is extremely valuable. The largest payoff for me and my company were the discussions and dialog that continued even after the event was over.
    John Jabara
    Savenia Labs
  • The Startup Acceleration Forum is a great event for entrepreneurs interested in making impactful connections very quickly. The smaller size of the forum allows for real relationship-building and more meaningful conversations. Within days of the event, we landed a new customer and were invited to present at a conference thanks to new connections.
    Brewster Stanislaw
    Inside Social
  • I attended the first Consero startup event in Las Vegas. The group was a diverse set of startup entrepreneurs from a variety of industries and company stages. It gave me the chance to network outside of my normal startup circles and expand my network in many locations and industries. It was a really amazing experience overall and beneficial regardless of your startup stage, background, or industry!
