What is the 99U conference, you ask? It all stems from a Thomas Edison quote:
“Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.”
Hence, the goal of 99U is to provide practical guidelines for turning a light bulb idea into a well-executed idea. The conference accomplishes this by bringing some of today’s most creative and productive ideators together to share their insights on how to breathe life into an idea.
This week, Nate, our creative director, and myself will be heading to New York to attend the conference. We can be like sponges in a bucket of ideation execution and suck up inspiration to bring back to our team in Costa Mesa!
We will be tweeting from the conference and sharing the things that are inspiring us!
Here are some of last year’s speakers–one of whom will be featured in the upcoming season of Roadtrip Nation:Jad Abumbrad of Radiolab!
