Hi All,

Almost one year ago, Dale J. Stephens abruptly left university not knowing what he would do, or how he would support himself. Two months later he signed a lucrative book contract with Penguin Press, an achievement that most authors dream of their entire lives. What happened? How did he do it?

Dale would be the first to admit that he’s no more intelligent or motivated than the average person, but that he also doesn’t believe that luck is responsible for his success. Instead, he was smart enough to know when fortuitous opportunities were presented to him, and motivated enough to take advantage of them.

Join us on Friday, March 23rd, 2012 as VEF Momentum welcomes Dale J. Stephens, Founder of UnCollege, and Thiel Fellow to the Vancouver entrepreneurial community. Dale, an entrepreneurial star at the ripe-old age of twenty, will tell us why he founded the UnCollege movement, how he won the prestigious Thiel Fellowship, and, of course, lead us on his path from college dropout to contracted author in two months.

Click here to register now and join Dale J. Stephens as he brings a unique perspective on the future of education, talent, and innovation to the VEF Momentum stage. An educational futurist and speaker on issues facing Generation Y, Dale delivers core insights about learning, technology, and success.
