IdeaMensch Salt Lake City: July 18 at The Miller Business Innovation Center

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 Salt Lake City. At every event, we we bring in a wide range of awesome speakers who then spend 10-15 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.

Starting with these four amazing speakers who each will share with you their journeys of bringing to life their ideas.

Daniel Blake of EcoScraps is going to talk about their journey of starting and growing a company evolving around all-natural, sustainable products that help you grow bigger and healthier plants.

You ever wonder what it’s like to pitch to Mark Cuban on national TV? Dallas Robinson and Mike Buonomo are going to share their journey of creating Kisstixx, what it’s like to be on Shark Tank and what they learned along the way.

Derek Miner is going to share with us what it took to build Inc 500 company OrangeSoda, and will teach us a thing or two about online marketing along the way.

And last but not least, Brandon Young of LDSBookstore will be talking about why he started and what it takes to build a successful ecommerce business.

The event will be held at:

Miller Business Resource Center on the SLCC Miller Campus

9750 South 300 West Room 203

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
