MiniTrends Conference Predicts The Next Wave Of Social Business Success


For Immediate Release

The second annual MiniTrends 2013: The Integration of Profit & Social Responsibilty will host 19 visionary business leaders to forecast the leading edge of business so attendees can be ready to optimize opportunities in advance of mainstream social adoption. The conference is the result of 35 years of forecasting to share the future through the lens of MiniTrends. The conference and master workshop are scheduled Oct. 2-3 in one of the centers of entrepreneurial innovation, Austin, TX.

MiniTrends are emerging market tendencies that can change everything — but that are not yet widely recognized. Conference highlights include: Serial Entrepreneur and Conference Keynote Gary Hoover, founder of Bookstop and Hoover, Inc., guiding how to start new and grow established ventures that make a difference through entrepreneurship, innovation, and leadership; Stacy Zoern, who has never walked, shares her story of founding Community Cars to make small electric vehicles where a wheelchair can be rolled in and used as the driver’s seat; Tarja Mristo brings a Finnish Innovator’s unique global insight to the event.

Conference Chair Dr. John Vanston, Chairman of Technology Futures and author of the award-winning book, MINITRENDS, notes “MiniTrends provides attendees the creative mindset and advantage to find and optimize emerging opportunities while following their passion to make the word a better place. The innovative leaders provide a cutting-edge path toward using these emerging trends to start new or grow established organizations for profit with attention to all stakeholders. A win-win situation.”
