Expect serious star wattage at the Forbes Under 30 Summit 2017 to be as powerful as headliner Halsey, who kicked off the four-day conference at Boston’s 2016 inaugural blockbuster.
Boston is well on its way to becoming one of the glam-intellectual capitals of the world. For the second year in a row, the Forbes Under 30 Summit descends October 1 to 4 unleashing some of the greatest thinkers, doers and disruptors for a fervent mind mash-up. “The energy is that these are the people who will collectively run the world for the next 50 years,” says Forbes Editor Randall Lane. The summit convenes some 7,000 leading entrepreneurs, CEOs, founders and investors. There’s a heavy celebrity quotient with actor Ashton Kutcher, Congressman Seth Moulton and performer/ activist Asia Kate Dillon topping the list of speakers. Headquartered at City Hall Plaza, the event amps up its healthcare and science programming this year. Attendees binge on thought and then wash it all down with a pop-up beer garden, food festival and the A-list Under 30 Music Festival.
