Festival Update: Speakers and fundraising

We've stepped out on faith: The Festival is coming together, but we definitely need your support during our fundraising drive. See how you can help!

The Festival marches onward towards its October 15 launch!

Details are coming together nicely:  Two locations (Long Island University and Water Street Lounge, both in downtown Brooklyn); 14 speakers (with more on the way); four dynamic artists performing at the afterparty (and maybe a few additions here).

The big push right now is fundraising.  We’ve launched an IndieGoGo campaign with some great perks. Click on the image below to check out the video.  Also, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!  There are Facebook, Twitter and other sharing links on the campaign page.  For updates as happen, like the Festival’s Facebook page, and follow the Festival on Twitter.
