EI Forum | Frequently Asked Questions:

HOW MUCH DOES THE EI FORUM COST?

For those who register up until May 2nd, the Ei Forum is $149. From May 3rd the rate is $169 until registration closes at the end of May 23rd.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE REGISTRATION COST?

The registration fee covers all program materials, the reception on Friday night, and the lunch on Saturday. Registrants are responsible for their own lodging and transportation.

The real costs of hosting the Forum actually exceed the registration fees we receive because we are committed to keeping the Forum affordable for all who would like to attend.  Thanks to our generous donors, we have been able to make that happen every year.  If you’re interested in partnering with us and making a donation of funds, goods or services, please email Ei@redeemer.com.

DO YOU HAVE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HOTELS AND ACCOMMODATIONS?

The Ei Forum is taking place at the Centre for Social Innovation (http://nyc.socialinnovation.org/).

You can find alternatives that may best suit you by using sites such as www.kayak.com or www.hotels.com or www.hostelworld.com. Use of those sites does not constitute an endorsement.

WHO PARTICIPATES IN THE FORUM?

The Ei Forum seeks to bring together entrepreneurs (for-profit, not-for-profit and the arts), investors (of time, talent and resources) and pastors/ministry leaders in order to further the movement of Gospel entrepreneurship. You help us grow our event annually by referring newcomers for us to invite. All those who support and could benefit from Ei’s vision are welcome to email us at Ei@redeemer.com to request that we send an invitation.

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?

Presently, fees are nonrefundable because they provide the upfront commitment and expenses associated with securing the venue, the guest speakers, and preparation involved in producing such an event. In cases of medical emergencies, however, we will make exceptions. If you register and then are unable to attend, please consider donating your spot to a fellow entrepreneur, investor or pastor.

WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE?

The Ei Forum is business casual.  Ties are not required.

WILL A LIST OF ATTENDEES BE MADE AVAILABLE?

Yes. A list of attendees will be provided to all Forum participants prior to the start of the event.
