In the past 18 months, The ADVERTISING Club and REDBOOKS successfully launched the ADTHINK Series, which has now included 6 events, with an all-star cast of 20 total panelists/moderators + 20 hand-selected Founders with cutting edge ventures. In several quick-fire rounds, the start-ups present, the panelists evaluate each business, ask the targeted questions and provide feedback. The audience is filled with high-level marketers, media/publishing innovators, agency folks and top entrepreneurs (+ it’s a social BD/networking experience over drinks).
The event has been a huge success and one that will continue into 2015. Check out the video below for some insights for start-ups from industry experts, including:
