We all have projects we've been meaning to complete - the start of a novel in a desk drawer, a new business idea we haven't done anything about. When inspiration strikes, ideas flow freely. But seeing those ideas through to completion is another thing entirely. As Thomas Edison famously said, "Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration."
The goal of the 99% Conference is to shift the focus from idea generation to idea execution - providing road-tested insights on how to make your ideas happen. It's not about giving you more ideas, it's about empowering you to make good on the ones you've got.
Confirmed speakers Stefan Sagmeister, Jack Dorsey (Creator, Twitter), John Maeda (Pres., RISD), Eve Blossom (Lulan Artisans), and more.
Date: 15-16 April
Location: The Times Centre, New York City
