Las Vegas’ First-Ever Microbusiness Summit

The first of its kind Microbusiness Summit took place on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at Las Vegas City Hall.

GoDaddy Venture Forward research identified Las Vegas as having the second-highest number of microbusinesses in the country after New York City and three times the national average.

Inspired by the massive presence and growth of businesses with fewer than 10 employees (known as microbusinesses) found in Southern Nevada, GoDaddy, the City of Las Vegas, Workforce Connections and Bank of Nevada collaborated to design an impactful agenda based on the top three challenges facing Las Vegas entrepreneurs according to local Venture Forward surveys.  

Featured speakers included GoDaddy President of U.S. Independents, Gourav Pani; GoDaddy Sr. Director of Marketing, Amy Jennette, who presented a cutting-edge GoDaddy Airo™ demonstration; multiple Las Vegas city council members; a Nevada state senator; experts in finance and business licensing; and several local entrepreneurs. The event was hosted by motivational speaker Desirae King.

GoDaddy Venture Forward’s mission is to leverage data to better understand entrepreneurs and their impact, thereby enabling greater support for them.
