For anyone who truly wants to make ideas happen, ongoing learning is essential. As philosopher Eric Hoffer said, “In a time of drastic change, it is the learners who inherit the future.” That’s why we’re launching an incredible new event in New York this Fall: The first 99U Pop-Up School, which will take place this September 18-20th in New York.
Just in time for back to school, we’re curating a killer program around three skill sets that should be in every creative’s arsenal: career development, entrepreneurship, and brand + digital strategy. Each day will feature an incredible lineup of talks and master classes from creative visionaries like Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Adobe’s own Scott Belsky, Facebook designer Ben Barry, bestselling author & entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk, and former Apple VP Marketing Allison Johnson, among others.
But it’s not just about listening, it’s also about getting hands-on with learning. To achieve this, we’re building out an incredible interactive space called the Playground that will feature a hand-crafted lineup of mentorship sessions, skill-building booths, interactive workshops, and creative tool demos with partners like R/GA, Tattly, Red Antler, XFund, Pantone, and many more.
