He shared that the motivation for establishing the annual conference was rooted in a desire to help young entrepreneurs navigate the challenges of running a business successfully.

I also wanted to ensure that LBN 2023 aligned with that goal and with the kind of feedback we’ve been getting; I believe we achieved that goal.
