More than 300 presenters, 150 events and thousands of visitors have “conquered” New York between the 22nd and 26th of October; and we were also in on the action – this year as visitors eager for knowledge, next year maybe as something more – who knows, after all, the Land of Promises has thought us that where there is a will, there is a way!

Festival that annually unites thousands of creative and innovative creators

Fast Company Innovation Festival in New York has now, for the 4th time in a row, promised a great deal of inspiration, motivation and excitement. Through keynote lectures, workshops and round tables, the festival has met – or even exceeded – all expectations. We were a part of the crowd of international leaders in entrepreneurship, design and marketing, with whom we have shared our insights and business opportunities. We were able to participate in more than 100 “Fast tracks”, which have taken us into the backstage of various studios, agencies and offices of the most attention-grabbing and fast developing companies in New York.

Inspirational lectures by famous faces with a common theme: The Future is Creative

In a world full of information, services and products, creativity and innovation are of a key importance. Perfect example of this is Pharrell Williams, who spoke about new creative projects with Illumination Entertainment:

»Take a leap of faith. You're going to be fine, but you have to jump.«

Fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg has revealed how to overcome entrepreneurship and how to strengthen powers with competition; she emphasized the importance of attitude that we have with ourselves.

»At the end, everything is about relationship you have with yourself. Once you have it, then any relationship is a plus and not a must.«

Sara Blakely, developer of the company Spanx, has talked about how important our own personal growth is on an evolving career path. She says that we have to step out of our comfort zone, because entrepreneurship’s discoveries can also be applied in other areas of life.

»As soon as you can afford to, hire your weaknesses.«

Scooter Braun, American entrepreneur, investor and manager of many world-known musicians, such as Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Kanye West, says that entrepreneurship and business relations are risky. Everyone has their own ups and downs, but what is important is that we do not give up on people when they are going through a rough patch.

“You don’t quit on people when they’re down. That’s when you actually find out if you’re there for somebody.”
