"IF Burning Man AND TED Talks HAD A BABY, IT WOULD BE Voice & Exit."

WE CRITICIZE BY CREATING - V&E is a conference and festival for visionaries—entrepreneurs, innovators, and creatives. We’re building companies, launching projects, and making art that fundamentally alters reality towards peace, abundance and human flourishing.

WE PREDICT THE FUTURE BY CREATING IT - We are a gathering of radical entrepreneurs -- those who are both open-minded dreamers and critical thinkers; both idealists and practical problem solvers. We want to make more than a profit. We want to leave a dent in the universe.

WE MAXIMIZE HUMAN FLOURISHING - Join a global group of Exiters who aren't f*cking around when it comes to transforming our world. Learn, collaborate, experiment and connect with like-minded people who are ready to criticize by creating.
