The year is 2022.

Humankind stands on the brink!

Only Entrepreneurs can save them.


Do business situations remind you of challenges faced in science fiction?

Does mindset shifting make you think of using the Force?

Do you think of the Fellowship of the Ring as the ultimate Strategic Alliance?

Are you a geek entrepreneur?

Then this event is for you! EntrepreNERD Summit is a serious virtual business summit for serious geeks who are also serious coaches, speakers, and experts.

The Audience

This event is for geeks who happen to be entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs who happen to be geeks, particularly those who are in the growth phase of their business. We're talking Luke during A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, although Return of the Jedi Luke could also find some value here as well.

We delivering the valuable content that the audience needs to grow their business, and we're having a darned lot of fun doing it.


Your Speaker Experience

We're very flexible in the approach to this event making it a playground for speakers. The focus is on creating a great experience for the community who joins us. It just so happens that creating a great experience tends to lead to more opt ins and sales, but that comes second.

If there's something you want to do, then I'll probably say “sure, why not?” Just don't be pitchy. Pitching okay. Infomercial, less so. :)


Event Style

The event will be a live, Zoom-based event running a full day.

We're aiming for engagement. We want an event where people feel they are part of something, not where they feel like they are watching a YouTube video.

This means that we'll have interactive activities. It means we encourage interactive presentations.

It also means that we encourage speakers to be there for as much of the event as possible because you'll be making some connections while you're there. (Speakers are required to attend for at least 2 hours of the event)


Schedule Structure

Speaking slots will be 15 minutes, or, if your presentation is interactive we give you an extra 5 minute for a total of 20.

Each hour will be formatted as follows:

0-15 Speaker

15-30 Speed Networking

30-45 Speaker

45-60 Q&A for previous two speakers/break



All presentations will be recorded. They will be available to all VIPs and all speakers. Additionally, some videos may be shared out to attendees or others on my list for various reasons including promoting that speaker's affiliate link or program.



Speakers are expected to promote at least three times, and a minimum of 5 opt-ins are expected from each speaker. Swipe copy will be provided, or you can write your own copy. If you write really good copy, I'll share it with the other speakers and credit you.


If you bring in at least 10 opt ins, I will promote your affiliate offer to my entire list.


The top three promoters (by total opt-ins) will be promoted to the entire list of attendees and my own entire mailing list, whatever you would like to share (within reason), no affiliate necessary.

Critical Lessons from Avatar, Star Trek, & Star Wars, OH MY!
Andie Monet Business Optimization Expert

I love science fiction because it reminds us that some of us want to “fight the good fight", want to make a difference, and want to change the world.  Some of us just like challenges too.  But either way, being an entrepreneur is a journey, and certainly not a destination.

After consulting for over 30 years, I'll show you how each of these films has an element that is critical to surviving, winning, and even thriving in business.

"The Night King, My Lord, Is Dead..." - An Unexpected Lesson for Marketers
Csaba Borzasi Emotional Response Marketer

In this presentation, you’ll discover how Episode 3 of Game of Thrones Season 8 managed to totally mess up the Night King (& White Walker) story arc…

And what every marketer can learn from this blunder.

(especially in the age of rising ad costs, abysmal engagement, and ever-decreasing conversion rates). 

You see…

Using storytelling in your marketing is REALLY FREAKIN' POWERFUL.

Leads and customers are ultimately drawn to your brand because of your authentic brand voice and stories. 

And yet… even the biggest companies with astronomical budgets routinely mess this up…

Only to alienate lots of otherwise loyal fans. 

BIG mistake!

So in this presentation, I want to show you how to be extra careful with YOUR messaging…

And how can you avoid instantly destroying the trust and credibility you’ve built up with your tribe over the years.

How Negotiating for Comic Books Taught Me About Pricing Strategy
Nikki Green Founder

After 20 years in tech doing pricing strategy for some of the world's biggest tech firms, I have a lot of pricing strategy expertise I can share with other business owners.  The strange thing, my expertise didn't come from those Silicon Valley conference rooms.  It came from my time spent searching for rare comics with my family at Comic Conventions.

During this talk, attendees will learn how to negotiate with confidence, how to read your negotiation partner for the best deal, and how to close the sale at the right price every time.

Mindset Closing the Sale
Sylvain Hache Public Speaking Problem Solver

No one knows what type of screw holds an iPad together. 

But everyone knows that if Gandhi had used a computer, it would have been a Mac.

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes ... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. ... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. ... They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."

Like him or not, Steve Jobs knew how to speak to an audience and move them to action.

In this short talk, you'll learn how to turn your comprehensible to you only techno-babble into powerful messaging that makes you sound like a natural leader in 3 steps.

Translation: Civilians will understand you and do what you tell them.
