About this project
Pursuit is a full day experience designed specifically for creative professionals to share their passion for entrepreneurship, learn about business growth and collaborate with others on the same mission.
Whether you run your mini empire outside of regular office hours, have a home studio or set-up shop at your kitchen table… The Pursuit Creative Conference revolves around supporting your unique needs and your unconventional ventures.
All three founders of the Pursuit Creative Conference are creative business owners that noticed a need for a space for creative people to connect in person.
Growing your business to a sustainable level is tough and often frustrating. There are so many things that you should do and it’s hard to find clarity and focus on what matters. While it's easy to get pulled in a million directions, it's also hard to find traction.
The trio came together, along with a slew of ambitious volunteers to provide the business tools to thrive in addition to the support of camaraderie. We want to create something that is bigger than our individual business… Pursuit is about Community.
The Pursuit Creative Conference is a full-day experience for 150 creative professionals to come together with others on a mission: to take their business to the next level.
Purchasing a ticket for the Pursuit Creative Conference is an investment in you + your business. Have you ever stepped into a room filled with others that share your same mission and are facing the same highs and lows? It's powerful.
Insights from our experienced speakers and panelists will leave you with a fresh perspective and reinvigorated you to take action. By connecting with our community of ambitious creative types, you’ll always have a crew to hold you accountable and will spark the motivation to take your business to the next level.
The Pursuit Creative Conference will be held on October 3, 2015 at Propeller in New Orleans, LA.
The conference is centered around five national level speakers + keynotes that approach topics related to the top five struggles that small creative business owners face on a regular basis.
Note: We are currently vetting the schedule of speakers and will be introducing them throughout the campaign... until then, its top secret.
We're curating a group of our favorite New Orleans small business owners to share insights and stories as featured panelists.
A food truck round up will make for great conversation and collaboration over lunch.
To wrap up the day, we'll celebrate in true New Orleans style... over cocktails. All conference-goers will be invited to attend the after hours event to download the experience.

After six months of research and logistical planning- we’ve mapped it all out. With your funding we will secure national industry leaders and speakers to provide a great learning and inspirational experience.
Whether you’re interested in starting a creative business, are ready to grow your start-up or simply support our ambitions to empower other creative entrepreneurs- please consider backing our campaign at any level.
Money raised from this campaign will be directly invested in marketing and producing the creative conference, specifically:
- securing speakers that are in-line with our mission
- renting a venue
- furniture rental for the audience
- audio visual needs
- spreading the word
Remember: unless we hit the total goal, we don't get ANY of the money that's been pledged, which means we can't make the conference happen - so make sure to spread the word!
Not sure if Pursuit is right for you?
The creators of Pursuit have tailored its programming for creative professionals who either own a business or aspire to start one. Speakers are hand-selected based on topics that span any level of aspiring business owners.
In other words, there is no prerequisite to be a part of the experience and we’re making sure that nothing will be too basic. Photographers, designers, lifestyle bloggers, artists, stylists and writers who strive to grow a business around your unique talents- this one’s for you.
Here’s a quick test: Have you read the Pursuit Manifesto? Listen to the first minute of the Kickstarter video as a refresher… did your brain say “Yes! This is me”. If so, come on in.
If you’re still on the fence, we’re here to help.
Email: email@example.com and we’ll answer any more specific questions regarding the conference.
