The "0260 Entrepreneurship Conference," to be held April 21-23 at NYU, aims to present important news for entrepreneurs in the New York City area through a series of educational and motivational events.

Organizers say the conference will unite entrepreneurs, then offer them resources, expertise and an experience that will help them improve the way they do business.

Solidea managing director Randall Kane said the mission of the conference is "to capitalize on the wealth of ideas and innovation that defines the New York entrepreneur by pairing them with the best local talent and local funds that will fuel their success."

"Through 0260, we are providing a platform for fostering innovation, growth and ultimately, jobs, for the metropolitan area," he said.

Entrepreneurs participating in the competition will vie for a grand prize package worth more than $50,000. After a three-week process, winners will receive access to leading venture strategists from Solidea Capital and NYU's Berkeley Center of Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

Prior to the "0260" conference, the city will host New York Entrepreneur Week. Held semi-annually, NYEW features workshops, panel discussions, and keynote speeches by distinguished business leaders.
