The Lineup for ThinkFest 2015 Is Confirmed!

And it's your last chance to snag early-bird tickets.

Planning the lineup for ThinkFest takes about six months, so you can imagine how exciting it is for us to finally announce that all the speakers are confirmed. Our goal for the event is to create a platform where a whole bunch of interesting people can share their stories and ideas, which range from taking Hollywood by storm to developing a medical technology that will forever alter lives to suddenly becoming a darling of the startup world.

The one thing all our speakers have in common? They have a strong connection to our great city. And when taken as a whole, they show off the most forward-looking, big-thinking, moving-and-shaking side of Philly.

Here’s whom you can expect to hear from at this year’s ThinkFest (which, by the way, is on November 6th at Drexel’s LeBow College of Business). We believe smart people attract even smarter people, so expect to interact with the city’s best and brightest on the stage and off it. And have a beer on us during happy hour.

See you there. (Pssst … early-bird tickets are on sale until October 4th. Click here to get yours!)
