  • Thiel Fellowship: Challenging Current Paradigms

    by Jonathan Cain

    Why are some of the brightest, most passionate and innovative young people in America dropping out of college? 20u.org, a web-based film series, follows the personal journeys of four brilliant young entrepreneurs through the course of the inaugural Thiel Fellowship.

    Through a visually stunning mosaic of over a dozen short films shot over the course of two years, we meet the young and awe-inspiring Laura Deming, Alex Kiselev, Sujay Tyle and Chris Rueth as they leave their universities and homes to embark on unique and ambitious entrepreneurial ventures, with guidance and mentorship from Silicon Valley’s brightest and most successful entrepreneurs.

    20u.org – an interactive documentary with episodic updates — showcases the experiences of each of these young innovators in three parts: entering the Thiel Fellowship; the Fellowship in full swing; and at the Fellowship’s completion, as they carry their incredibly valuable new knowledge and experience into the future.

    At 1:00pm to 1:30pm, Monday 12th March

    In Room 10AB, Austin Convention Center
