Event Details

Alex Hillman, Indy Hall

Alex is the co-founder of Philadelphia’s Indy Hall, one of the world’s most respected coworking communities. With over 6 consecutive years of vibrant growth and hundreds of active members, it has become a mainstay in the Philadelphia creative, technology, and entrepreneurship scene. Alex is also the creator and lead instructor of the Community Builder Masterclass, an intensive bootcamp-style course that teaches community leaders, managers, and corporations how to build a robust and powerful culture that scales for anything from a neighborhood association to a coworking space to a Fortune 50 business. Alex is a believer in these 5 truths:

  • Learning is a part of everyday life.
  • True collaborations start with the foundation of a relationship, not a transaction.
  • Either the world happens to you, or you happen to the world. You get to choose which.
  • Success, happiness, and love are things that are not achieved but are experienced, and are best experienced with others.
  • Do, or do not. There is no try. #JFDI
