A conference for visionary entrepreneurs and creators designing the future.


May 18 - 20, 2018 | Austin, TX



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 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.


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.

You'll receive a free copy of the V&E manifesto

Each year a select group of Exiters is curated to join the Mastermind experience.

During the main Mastermind dinner, attendees will have the opportunity to meet the 2018 V&E speakers and gain access to private presentations. The intention is to create the conditions for alchemy to occur, resulting in unexpected, long-lasting new connections between individuals (and ideas).

Friday - Join a reception to meet your fellow Masterminders with a light dinner during the dinner break for Seeds talks.

Saturday - Mastermind Dinner, featuring a guest host who will create the container for the evening. Attendees are paired up with their mastermind groups based on optimal fit (a result of your application).

Voice & Exit 2018 Venue


Let's get to the bottom of this

Is Voice & Exit for me?

Voice & Exit is a global community of visionary entrepreneurs and creatives who are redesigning the paradigms of culture and society, often beginning with personal transformation. This event is distinctly apolitical. We aim to inspire and catalyze positive social change through the power of collaboration, creativity and innovation. We sum this up in the phrase, “criticize by creating.” If you are an entrepreneur or creative with aspirations to positively influence the world, there is no better place to meet like-minded collaborators and be transformatively inspired than V&E.

V&E is NOT for those who are:

  • Comfortable with the status-quo.
  • Uncomfortable with contrarian ideas.
  • Focused solely on profit.
  • Hoping others will address the world’s biggest challenges.

Don’t buy a ticket if the above describes you.

What will I get from this event?

Learn from some of the world’s most future-thinking, visionary entrepreneurs and creative thinkers. Meet extraordinary people working on the coolest projects on the planet. Feel yourself moved into a state of awe about the possibilities of the future. Leave the rest to serendipity!

What does “Voice & Exit” mean?

The name “Voice & Exit” was inspired by an essay titled Exit, Voice, and Loyalty (1970) by Albert O. Hirschman. The concept is that to influence positive change within a society or community, we have three options. We can voice our opinions to try and persuade others to change (this includes creative endeavors within the group aimed at making changes). We can remain loyal even if we disagree with a given group. Or we can exit said group and bound outward into the beautiful unknown to create anew. Which one do you think is our favorite? “Voice & Exit” celebrates the power of persuasion and creativity (Voice) + the bold willingness to explore new frontiers (Exit).

What is the event format?

Short format talks kick off Voice & Exit. These are called Seeds talks. They are intended to share stories about real projects that are shaping the future and giving rise to human flourishing. The following day is filled with breakout sessions called Sprouts. Sprouts enable you to go deeper into the ideas and are very often interactive. Blooms is a celebration of the positive future we are all envisioning–with life music, performances and immersive tech installations. The final day of the event is called Harvest, and was designed to maximize the retention of information (it can be a lot!) and allow deeper conversations and networking to take place.  This linear format is designed to maximize the impact of the ideas and stimulate as many new connections as possible (both between individuals and in your brain).

Where should I stay during the conference?

Hotel recommendations will be released shortly.

When we started Voice & Exit, we wanted to build a community of people willing to think subversive thoughts. We wanted a new tribe willing to push the limits of what's possible. We had no idea there were so many people out there looking for the same thing -- the answer to a simple question: "Why not?"

If that's you, welcome to Voice & Exit.
