Event description

Description

Communities serve as both common ground and central platform for individuals to elevate their voice

From special interests to social causes, communities drive influence and change through their words and actions

But how can startups and brands benefit from building, nurturing and activating their own communities?


Join us on our Live Podcast Bus (yes, a podcast recording that takes place on a moving bus) on Wednesday June 13th as Linerun Live discusses the Power of Community for Startups & Brands with Sumeet Shah, VC in Residence at Galvanize NYC. In this unique live mobile experience, Sumeet will share the inner workings of why startups and brands should embrace community and how each party ultimately benefits from a symbiotic relationship.


Linerun Live is an innovative take on the traditional fireside chat that transforms a coach bus into a live podcast lounge. Onboard, we host engaging discussions featuring noted leaders across various business, media and entertainment, where you'll listen to our conversation as it happens through the bus speakers (our version of a live podcast lounge). The connecting continues when we arrive at a local food hall, where you’ll have time to get to know your fellow connectors through fun, curated activities.

Part live mobile podcast experience on a bus, part food hall social in Manhattan. Come for perspective, leave with insight.
