Celebrating the  DIY as the Entrepreneurial Mindset

The How-To Fest is a one day summit style event full of fun lightening talks, panels and community engagement. We kick off the day with an Adult Pep Rally and end the day with a pitch competition for women of color Makers and Creatives.  “How to…” is the number one searched phrase on the internet. YouTube has opened the door for an instructional video phenomenon where you can learn to do everything from how to tie your shoe to how to curl your hair on YouTube. There’s a little DIY inside everyone. We bring the maker out of everyone by creating a crowdsourced learning experience where experts across various fields come together to share their knowledge of the topics they love.
