ThinkFest 2014  |  Friday, November 14, 2014  |  9am to 4pm
at Drexel’s LeBow College of Business

We are busy at work bringing together the smartest people — in the city and beyond — so you can be
educated, inspired, entertained and connected.

We are now accepting nominations for 2014 speakers, artists, and motivators. In the past we’ve had M. Night Shyamalan talk about education, Dr. Carl June on curing cancer, Josh Kopelman discuss our booming start-up scene, Marc Vetri on how to cultivate creativity, Stephen Starr on building an industry, and more. Know of a Philadelphian doing something so creative, bold and inspiring that they deserve a platform to share their ideas? Nominate them here. Our editors will be making final selections this summer.

We will be releasing a limited number of tickets for early-bird pricing.
Sign-up and you’ll be the first to know.
