Don't Miss Keynote Speaker Heidi Ganahl
Heidi Ganahl is one of Colorado's best-known entrepreneurs and community leaders.  Heidi has faced extraordinary adversity in her life. Beginning with the loss of her first husband at the age of 27, to losing a million-dollar insurance settlement, Heidi's entrepreneurial spirit and extraordinary leadership skills helped her pick herself up and build a $100 million brand in the pet and franchise industry, Camp Bow Wow. She now devotes her time to keeping the American dream alive by empowering women through her brand the SheFactor, leading her social entrepreneurship incubator the Fight Back Foundation, leading a free speech initiative on college campuses, the Free to Be Coalition and sharing her stories through public speaking.
