Don’t Miss out on the Springboard Event for Emerging Franchisors!
We are fast approaching the 4th annual Springboard Event. Each year, franchise law firm Fisher Zucker and franchise PR firm Fishman PR team up with Entrepreneur Magazine to host the preeminent event for emerging brands.
The past 5 years have shown emerging brands to be a major population in the franchising world with 100% of IFA’s new membership since 2011 having less than 60 units. This trend has not slowed:
- The IFA has signed 205 new members since the beginning of 2015.
- 198 (97%) of those new members have less than 50 units.
- 162 (79%) of those new members have less than 20 units.
- 137 (67%) of those new members have less than 10 units.
Springboard was created to provide a supportive and productive community for this growing population of emerging franchisors to learn from the pros. With founder-led speaker sessions, new franchisors get the opportunity to hear from seasoned franchise executives on how they overcame the same obstacles facing emerging brands, to help them grow from 20 to 200 units. Springboard provides educational clinics, practical break-out sessions and a hands-on group exercise, giving young brands a variety of opportunities to learn about a wide breadth of topics specifically geared toward them.
Last year, we had over 150 franchisor attendees, including the founders, presidents or CEOs of over 75 brands. This year, we hope to reach even more founders, whether they come eager to teach or learn – or both! With some of the most memorable networking events in the industry, held at iconic Philly venues, Springboard is a “can’t miss” opportunity to give back to the industry — or get a leg up from those who have been in your shoes.Back
