Hip Hop + Tech Entrepreneurship = We All WIN!!

Tech808 is one of the most anticipated conferences of the year because of its unique pairing of Hip Hop and Entrepreneurship. Looking to take your dreams to the next level and build a business you can be proud of? This November in New York City, The Phat Startup and the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University brings together a diverse range of industry leaders, and startup founders all influenced by Hip Hop to educate the community on Entrepreneurship .

Tech808 will explore the world of entrepreneurship through the lens of people actually in the trenches making it happen. Not a billionaire that has others building their dreams.  Each talk will leave YOU inspired but also ready to take it to the next level with executable actionable advice!

Wait no Jay Z or P Diddy?  We believe real learning takes place when you learn from people building out their dreams , not the person that has built an empire. We can learn from someone like Jay Z but the tactics people in the trenches are using RIGHT NOW, can make a big difference in your company.

They won’t be selling you their dreams, they will be there educating you on how you can go from dream chasers to businessmen and women.
