Speakers

Northside Innovation is where the best and brightest names in the global innovation community come to discover the next big thing through a series of panel talks, keynotes, pitch competitions, and networking events.

There is no place to develop your professional network and connect with colleagues who will transform your career or your business like our conference. Northside Innovation will feature talks on emerging tech, media innovations, the future of original video content, startup pitch competitions, talks on design, tactical workshops for entrepreneurs, and cultural discussions with Brooklyn influencers.

We will have a 2018 speaker submission form available in November 2017. Please email inquiries to speakers@northsidemedia.com.
