Next week, INNOV8 Acadiana will be hosting their first annual Technology & Entrepreneurship Summit. INNOV8’s summit is a series of events that are designed to celebrate and inspire up and coming entrepreneurs in the Acadiana area. The event runs from November 12-14 and will include the INNOV8 awards ceremony, Technology Job Fair, Cajun Code Fest, INNOV8 the Plate, notable guest speakers, pitch challenge, panels, key notes, food trucks, and much more!

One of this year’s guest speakers will be Frankie Russo. He will be presenting his upcoming book The Art of Why Saturday at 1:00pm in the Picard Center’s Potenza Room. For anyone who is trying to find their purpose in business and master it, this is a great event for you. Russo’s presentation will ask you the questions you need to start mastering your purpose in business.

“Most entrepreneurs get stuck only asking the survival questions like, who? what? when? and where?, while neglecting the most important question of WHY?,” says author Frankie Russo. “WHY are you in the business that you’re in? Are you in this for the cash, power, fame, to help others? My new book helps people learn which questions to answer first and how to keep their WHY as the motivation for everything they do.”

Those who attend this event will receive a FREE digital copy of The Art of Why. Seating is limited so please register ahead of time. Registration can be done online at or at the door of the day’s event.

About INNOV8’s guest speaker: Frankie Russo is the owner of Potenza’s family of companies, 2 time INC 5000 award winner, and new author of The Art of Why.
