At the heart of the #TILTEDRVA idea: Businesspeople talking to other businesspeople about the real challenges -- and solutions -- to effective growth and day-to-day operations.

As a small business owner – or an employee in a small business – you know the value of innovation, transformation and being part of a thriving creative community. You also understand that there are harder, more serious and more essential elements to launching and building a great business.

Let’s leave the long speeches, drab PowerPoints and passive networking behind. Join us on February 23 for TILTED: A RVA Small Business Not Conference. TILTED challenges the conference status quo with a hands-on forum for small business owners to learn, share and connect – all served up with a large side of awesome, provided by the knowledge and experience you and 224 of your small business peers will bring into the room.

From small group sessions and interactive workshops to a food truck lunch rally and crowd-sourced discussions, TILTED is built on the belief that when the right people are in the room, the right knowledge is in the room. We learn the most when we are part of conversations that matter.

Get ready. TILTED is going to help you rethink your business in small, explosive ways.
