What’s the History of Mindshare LA?

Mindshare LA started in Downtown Los Angeles in March 2006 at the Brewery Artists Lofts as an informal forum for people to share their passions, skills and needs. In the years that followed Mindshare LA became a mecca for thousands of intellectuals, designers, scientists, media professionals, social entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and other forward-thinking characters to meet, broaden their perspectives, and expand their circle of connections. The evenings are centered around a curated program of short talks and performances that offer a bridge between people with different skills & backgrounds. Since those early days, Mindshare LA has hosted almost two hundred events that combine inspiration and interaction. Mindshare LA creates unique in-person gatherings where interesting and unexpected things can happen. Or, as we like to put it: "Where Ideas and Mischief Mingle".

“Mindshare’s ballooning popularity is emblematic of a generation steeped in chaos and an unabashed  need for personal fulfillment. If you ever come to LA, come to Mindshare.”  –Fast Company



“Los Angeles, you’re getting smarter. Or acting smarter, anyway. Judging by the runaway success of interdisciplinary idea-jam and the brainy bacchanal of Mindshare LA, the Los Angeles area has become a hub for gatherings that combine the social and the cerebral. It’s a brave new world for upwardly mobile Angelenos who want to simultaneously make business connections, feed their minds and fill out their virtual little black books.” –The LA Times


“A forum for human technology in its most literal form – shared knowledge.  Fueled by fancy pastries, an exceptionally well-stocked bar and a room abuzz with stylish people.” –LA Weekly
