    I presume this event targets the millennial market, however, I'd be interested in connecting with "boomer" entrepreneurs who are active (or trying to be) on social media. I'm a publicist/mkt'g consultant always looking to expand my client base, esp. by supporting more mature business owners who may not be as adept as managing their online presence as their younger counterparts. I'm also looking for a summer intern (lots of hands-on experience + $s) so I hope to make a few social media "love connections"...LOL
