People Powered Innovation

Innovation is not driven by technology, infrastructure and capital. Innovation is driven by the imagination and determination of people.
 
Flying Car brings together pioneers in all fields to make the future. This annual two-day conference features stories from diverse thought leaders, hands-on labs where guests dig into a variety of fields, and plenty of time for connecting with other future-minded leaders. Flying Car 2014 has adopted the theme "People-Powered" — because it all starts with people. New ideas don't start with technology and money. They start with the imagination and determination of people, so let's celebrate them!

Geeks, artists, entrepreneurs, corporations, and the future-minded public: join us at the conference of tomorrow!
