Event description
Good is the New Cool a global movement dedicated to serving world-changing creators & innovators using business & culture as forces for good

About this Event


We created our conferences to provide safe spaces for purpose-led people to find their allies, and learn how to use your talents and resources to make a positive from the leaders in business and culture who are changing our world for the better.

The health and well being of our community is of the highest importance to us. The COVID-19 coronavirus is having a global impact, which includes our community’s ability to travel and feel safe together. Thus, we believe it is the best decision to move the event to later in the year when, hopefully, this virus no longer poses a significant threat.

We are looking at moving LA to Saturday, September 12th and are finding a new date for NYC.

At this stage, we would be happy to issue refunds to those who request it via Eventbrite - or if you would prefer, we can hold your space for the new date.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at goodisthenewcool@gmail.com.

Thank you again for your support. We will be back!
