This year Mainstreet , of Carmel, has teamed together to work with EDGE Mentoring, a nonprofit group that encourages the mentorship of millennials. It was recently announced that Mainstreet will serve as the title sponsor for the first EDGE|X conference. The conference will be 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 7 at Grace Church, 5504 E. 146th St., Noblesville, and it will host a variety of speakers focusing on leadership development.
Mainstreet, located at 14390 Clay Terrace Blvd., Suite 205, has three core pillars to its organization: real estate, health care and investments.
“That’s what we do day to day, develop great real estate within a health care sector and create opportunities for investors,” VP of Marketing Chance Benbow said. “The reason (EDGEIX) is such a good fit is because of the synergy that exists between Mainstreet and EDGE Mentoring.
“(And) because EDGE is so dedicated to raising up the next generation of leaders … it’s one of the things that has fueled our massive growth the last few years,” he added.
Mentees, mentors, board members and the general public can attend this conference to learn and grow.
“EDGE is a mentoring organization for millennials ages 22-32,” EDGE Mentoring CEO Dave Neff said. “We have a whole-life mentoring model that consists of professional and personal development in a Christian context. Our mentors are men and women ages 35 and older who bring professional credibility and a passion for paying it forward. Millennials in EDGE are hungry to grow and learn from those 10, 20 or 30 years ahead of them.”
Tickets are $69. To register, visit edgexconference.com.
“The conference itself is really around this concept of multiplying your knowledge, your influence, your network and your own personal brand,” Benbow said.
