NPR “How I Built This” Summit

Corporate virtual entrepreneurship summit

The Client

NPR’s “How I Built This Summit” with Guy Raz provides a platform for successful entrepreneurs and business leaders to share their stories, experiences, and insights to inspire and educate aspiring entrepreneurs and business leaders. The summit also provides opportunities for attendees to network and learn from each other’s experiences.

Goals & Challenges

  • Figure out how to pivot NPR’s popular annual event to a virtual event during Covid-19. Create new, exciting, engaging ways for attendees to still network, meet, and engage with each other virtually via Hopin event platform.
  • Increase participation & engagement of QTBIPOC communities at the Summit
  • Increase participation & engagement of audiences 35 and younger
  • Ship high res cameras, lighting, and equipment to speakers all over the country and help them troubleshoot setting up on their own.
