The program offers a mix of formats including multi-day intensives, workshops, coaching sessions and clinics. Our program is taught by industry professionals, creative practitioners, activists, and scholars who lead open conversations about the changing nature of culture, technology, and business. The goal of our program is to optimize members’ freedom to explore, test, and scale while contributing to the NEW INC ecosystem.
