Milspo Project's MilspoCON 2017 delivers everything you need to start, expand and take your current business to the next level — in one essential event! We address the specific employment circumstances that all military spouses face, such as deployments, PCSs and work-life balance. Started in 2014, in the donated space of a church, MilspoCON has grown to be largest and only exclusive gathering of military spouse leaders and business owners in the world. Attendees and members return year after year, to make valuable connections, foster friendships, and to open up and learn in an safe and educational environment with like-minded military spouses.
Our speakers are leaders in their industries and will be live and available to answer attendee questions. Learn more about how they lead and work for positive change in their own lives, while they share their knowledge and experience on how to successfully run a business and find balance despite the ups and downs, and uncertainties of military life.
MilspoCON 2017 will take place in Wilmington, North Carolina at tekMountain - a truly unique, versatile space that offers unparalleled access to entrepreneurial mentors, venture capital offerings and professional services.
