Ideas by themselves are of little value. Whether your idea is an app, a nonprofit, a book, a website or an invention – what matters is that and how you bring it to life. And really it doesn’t matter whether the idea you’re bringing to life is a business, a project or a cause – the one thing that connects all people with ideas are our passions, struggles and ways we go about bringing our ideas to life.
Our mission is to help people bring their ideas to life. That’s what we try to do through our daily interviews with folks ranging from Seth Godin to Tony Hsieh to Craig Newmark, and that’s what we’re trying to do with our 48-state road trip across America.
And that’s what we’re going to do with our event in Tulsa. At every event, we we bring in a wide range of awesome speakers who then spend 10 minutes talking about an idea they brought (or are bringing to life), how they did and what you can learn from it. And then you’ll have 10 minutes to ask them questions and continue the conversation. We try to create an intimate setting that allows for the audience to really engage with our speakers.
We promise you’re going to walk away with at least five super valuable nuggets of information to put to use for your own idea. This isn’t a networking event, but you’re sure to meet some fascinating people.
The event will start at 6pm and go until about 9pm.
These three awesome speakers each will share with you their journeys of bringing to life their ideas.
Brett McKay, the creator of the popular blog The Art of Manliness will share with us some of the lessons he learned growing his blog to over 135,000 readers.
Rusty Rowe, Entrepreneur and Restaurateur of the Year at the 2010 Tulsey Awards, is going to talk about his experiences in opening and growing Mod’s Coffee and Crepes in Downtown Tulsa.
Ever wonder what it’s like to run a software company? Adam Nemec of New Medio will share with us some of his experiences of starting, growing and running a software and application development firm for the last twelve years.
The event will be held at:
The Hardesty Center for Fab Lab Tulsa
710 South Lewis Avenue
Tulsa, OK 74104
(corner of 7th Street and S. Lewis Ave.)
What People Say About Our Events
“If you’re hoping for a non-pretentious, inspiring environment to connect with great people and empower your ideas, do not miss IdeaMensch. These are the most genuine, good-natured people you’ll get to connect with, and they might even share a beer with you. Whereas TED seems to showcase extraordinary people, IM showcases and empowers ordinary people doing the extraordinary.” Thomas Bush
What a wonderful and insightful evening! I attend a lot of events for business owners, so I have a few to compare this event to, and this was by far some of the most informative and interesting speakers I’ve seen. Loved the laid back vibe as well. Thanks for taking the show on the road guys. Maggie Palmer
I was at the Portland event tonight. SO SO SO inspiring. I own and run my own medical practice, in addition to being a single parent of three, so my time is precious. The three hours I spent this evening at Instrument were just what I needed: inspiring, thought-provoking, engaging…and all with a nice cold beer :) Great way to top off a long Monday! Juniper Martin
