Peter Thiel and Tyler Cowen, both New York Times bestselling authors, are among today’s top global thought leaders and influential innovators. Join us as these two engage in a serious dialogue on the ideas and policies that will shape the future of innovation and progress in the coming years and decades.

Peter Thiel is among the most impressive innovators of the past two decades. As co-founder of Paypal and seed-funder for Facebook, Thiel has been instrumental in the conception and growth of some of today’s most entrepreneurial and innovative companies. In his latest best-selling book, Zero to One, Thiel explains how to build a better future by capitalizing on innovation. A staunch optimist, he maintains that progress can be achieved anywhere the human mind is able to think creatively. Thiel describes how entrepreneurial thinking leads to innovation, which builds something new and moves the mark from zero to one.

Peter Thiel will be available after the event to sign copies of Zero to One, available for purchase for $28 (credit cards accepted). You are also welcome to bring your own copies of the book to be signed.
