BizTank’s Midwest Business Conference Canceled, Focus Remains on Nonprofit


Attendees are being asked to contribute event ticket sales and sponsorships to support BizTank program and scholarship fund.

Joining several other significant business events, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, BizTank’s annual BizThreeSixty Business Conference, set for May 14, 2020, has been canceled. BizThreeSixty has been rescheduled for Thursday, May 13, 2021 with Jason Feifer, Editor-in-Chief of Entrepreneur Magazine, returning for his third year as emcee. In lieu of the cancellation, event leaders are requesting attendees to support the conference’s nonprofit, BizTank, by donating this year’s ticket sales and sponsorships. The BizThreeSixty Conference is a crucial fundraiser to support the BizTank program and its scholarships for high school Juniors and Seniors.

“Like many other organizations, we remained hopeful that COVID-19 would dissipate before our third annual BizThreeSixty Conference. But as concerns continue to grow, we understand that the safest decision for our community is to cancel this year’s event. We will continue BizTank’s Spring 2020 Season via the Zoom Webinar platform. We’re hoping to gain sponsorships to support our live streaming efforts to reach high school students, not only in our community but across the country, during these challenging times for them and teachers,” said Jeff Peterson, Co-Founder/CEO of Geneva Supply and Creator of BizTank.

Each BizTank season brings students, businesses, and community organizations together through guest speakers ready to share their journeys and offer advice for high school Juniors and Seniors as they learn about and explore various career opportunities. Upon graduation, students receive a scholarship for each BizTank season they have successfully completed.

BizThreeSixty event organizers are busy reaching out to attendees who have already purchased a live event ticket or sponsorship and requesting their continued support.
