On June 11- 12, 2015 while others festival-goers were celebrating music and film, the Northside Festival catered to another crowd eager to experience and discover what’s next in the world of Innovation.
Northside Innovation did not disappoint festival-goers and participants, with this being its biggest year yet, and over two days fostered discussion around entrepreneurship, technology, content creation and design. Northside co-founder Scott Stedman was present to welcome visitors to the opening of this year’s Innovation.
Dell and Intel continued their Northside partnership at Brooklyn Brewery with the opening night kickoff party, interactive panels, and innovative technology demos – all focused around Dell’s commitment to empowering entrepreneurial success and growth.
Festival-goers and hopeful entrepreneurs lined up for a chance to step inside the MasterCard “Priceless Elevator” in McCarren Park and pitch their product or service, for a chance to win $15,000. Christine Souffrant was chosen as the winner, for her idea to help international street vendors.
Emily Weiss, founder of Into the Gloss, hosted a sit-down fireside chat with her male counterpart, Andy Dunn of Bonobos.
Countless other stimulating talks, panels, events and parties with speakers including Tina Roth Eisenberg (“swissmiss”), Carl Honore (Slow Movement), Maxwell Ryan (Apartment Therapy), Oliver Luckett (theAudience), Roger Lynch (Sling TV) and many more.
