How Creating a New Category Made Hint the Ultimate Challenger

It seems like most categories are so crowded these days it’s hard to compete, and even harder to shake things up. Kara Goldin, founder and CEO of hint®, the leading unsweetened flavored water, will discuss why she decided to take on the extremely competitive beverage industry, and how she saw a hole in the market as an opportunity rather than a roadblock. Kara will start from the beginning with her own personal problem she needed to solve, and explain how being resourceful, determined and scrappy helped her take on big brands.

The Rise of Geek Culture

Being a geek today is being unabashedly passionate about your interests. Millennial geeks are an influential, affluent group but are also notoriously hard-to-reach.
