On July 9, 2020, the Hispanic Unity of Florida announced that it will recognize Wendy Lieber and Dave Kustin, co-founders of ContentBacon, as recipients of the American Dreamer Award at the 2020 Entrepreneur Summit (E-Summit). The award recognizes individuals for their “steadfast success, business acumen and community service.” Previous winners include Jim Ryan, CEO of OutPLEX, and Carolyn Aronson, owner and founder of It’s a 10 Haircare.
“We are honored to join this group of industry experts and innovators who have also received this recognition,” says Lieber. “We look forward to meeting and speaking with other entrepreneurs and sharing our journey in building an inbound marketing business from scratch.”
“It’s an exciting time to be able to connect with other entrepreneurs, especially when we’ve all had to be more innovative and adaptive than ever,” says Kustin. “What a privilege to be recognized and given the opportunity to participate in this year’s summit.”
The 2020 E-Summit will take place every Wednesday in August of 2020 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The goal of the summit is to bring together new business owners and successful innovators to promote networking and inspirational opportunities, helping entrepreneurs create a path to business success. New entrepreneurs and founders will learn how to incorporate experts’ insights and advice into their own business strategies.
This year’s E-Summit will be a virtual event and will feature workshops, presentations, and talks, as well as a keynote interview with Jennifer Fitzgerald, CEO and co-founder of Policygenius. All sessions will provide valuable resources to small business owners. Attendees will hear about women-led businesses, how to deal with the pandemic, generating capital, and more.
On Wednesday, August 19, Wendy & Dave participated in the American Dreamer Panel Discussion which featured the award recipient honorees. The discussion will be moderated by renowned journalist and vice president of news and special correspondent for WLRN, Tom Hudson. ContentBacon was joined on the panel by Guillermo Jaime, founder and CEO of Social Global Leaders, and Claudio Sorrentino, CEO of Body Details.
