Join former NFL champ and entrepreneur Brad Benson at the 2015 Next Level Conference

Local business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs will come together to discuss innovation and successful business strategy at the IFEL Next Level Conference on November 13 in Newark. The conference will feature former Super Bowl winning New York Giant Brad Benson as the keynote speaker.

Benson is additionally known for having one of the most successful Hyundai dealerships in the country, and he will discuss how innovative marketing attributed to his success, how professional sports helped him in life, and how he has overcome failures.

The Next Level Conference is run by the Institute for Entrepreneurial Leadership, and will be hosted by the Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development at the Rutgers Business School in Newark. The event is meant to help “unleash your bright idea, create and build your business empire, accelerate growth through innovation,” and create a successful exit strategy, according to IFEL.
