One of the core beliefs that animates everything we do at 99U is: “Learning is a lifelong project.” To that end, we’re launching an incredible new event next month: The first 99U Pop-Up School, which will take place this September 18-20th here 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 & master classes from folks like Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Behance’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 all about the speakers. We’re also building out an interactive space called the Playground to get hands-on with the learning process. It will feature a hand-crafted lineup of mentorship sessions, skill-building booths, and interactive workshops with creative partners like R/GA, Tattly, Red Antler, XFund, and many more.
