Join John Middleton, Tamala Edwards, Apu Gupta and More at ThinkFest 2016
Philadelphia is full of smart people doing smart things. Things that can change the world. But you know the story: They are from Philly, so they don’t quite get the recognition they deserve.
That’s why we created ThinkFest.
For the fifth year in a row, we asked some of Philly’s most interesting people to tell their stories. Their stories vary in scope: Some have been through extraordinary experiences, others are at the epicenter of a cultural movement, some have a very specific problem they are trying to solve.
This year’s ThinkFest will be held on Tuesday, November 15th, at the Convention Center. Among the many highlights:
- Phillies’ co-owner John Middleton discusses the intersection of business, sports and philanthropy
- Asa Khalif, Philadelphia’s Black Lives Matter organizer/activist, and Tamala Edwards, 6 ABC news anchor, delve into the Black Lives Matter movement and what it means for Philadelphia
- Apu Gupta, co-founder of the smoking hot start-up Curalate, and Bob Moul, CEO of Cloudamize, chat about the state of our start-up scene
- Nicole Marquis (HipCityVeg), Steve Cook (Federal Donuts, Dizengoff), Justin Rosenberg (Honeygrow) and Danya Henninger (Billy Penn) ruminate on Philly’s quick-serve food revolution
- A performance by Bobby Hill and the Keystone State Boychoir
- Sasha Issenberg, author and contributor to Bloomberg Politics, on the 2016 Presidential election.
Of course, these are only a few of the speakers and entertainers that will be at the event.
