One of the things I’ve enjoyed very much about this event is that they allow the entrepreneur to actually breathe at the event, take in the information, and the information is actually relatable. It’s information that’s coming from real world entrepreneurs, people who have gone through this.


Who is the Summit for?

The Shenandoah Valley Entrepreneurship Summit is designed for entrepreneurs, small business owners, dreamers, and doers from across the Shenandoah Valley. Whether you are in the idea stage of your business, have been running your side hustle for years, or are ready to scale your business, you will find informative and approachable sessions for you. It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, how much money you make a year, or where you live in the Valley YOU ARE INVITED!

What should I bring? 

We suggest bringing the following: notebook, pens, laptop for work (and charger!), business cards for networking, and a reusable cup for ice water.

Where can I park?

There are several parking lots and parking decks in Downtown Harrisonburg that offer free parking.

Check out this list for details on lot locations. 

I have food allergies, can I bring my own food?

Yes! You can absolutely bring your own food - just let us know if you will and if you need a refrigerator to store your food in and we will show you where it is. Remember to label your food. :)

I use a wheelchair, is the venue accessible?

Yes! Our venue is accessible - you'll find accessible parking, entry, restrooms, pathways, and everything else you'll need.
