The conference, which takes place in the heart of downtown Atlanta at the Loudermilk Conference Center, aims to empower the next generation of digital leaders through a series of micro-lectures, breakout sessions and keynotes. With over 20 sessions in digital marketing, e-commerce, raising startup capital, monetizing side hustles and more, attendees can come away with actionable insights and inspiration.

Featuring a long list of featured speakers

Radio personality and author Lenard Larry McKelvey, known as ‘Charlamagne Tha God‘, will serve as the keynote speaker, with additional speakers including eBay’s Chief Diversity Officer Damien Hooper-Campbell, media executive and television producer Mona Scott-Young, entrepreneur and television personality Ray J, comedian Deon Cole, women’s advocate Dr. Jackie Walters, and more.

The event will also honor music executive and entrepreneur Jermaine Dupri as the recipient of the Steed Lifetime Achievement Award for his accomplishments over the past 25 years with his So-So Def Music label.

Attendees will learn the basic principles of coding, gain ideas on how to capitalize in the digital age and create an action plan for the conference kickoff.

Day 2:

Don’t get left behind in the tech-driven economy. Day 2 aims to shift the “this is how it’s always been done” mentality to a growth-oriented mindset focused on continuous innovation. Learn how to evolve your business with various digital tools to streamline productivity and scale quickly.
