Kicked off by the Tri-Cities high school marching band, the 2018 RIDE Conference hosted by Atlanta based media platform Rolling Out.
Standing for Rolling Out Innovation Digital Entertainment, the second annual RIDE Conference sought to facilitate dialogue around entertainment, business, technology and thought leadership.
The two-day conference delivered on the vision, connecting various industry professionals with future leaders, entrepreneurs and decision makers. Centered around multiple keynote speakers including Mona Scott-Young, Ray-J, Dame Dash, and Charlamagne Tha God, there were several educational breakout sessions offered giving attendees the space to gain knowledge, ask questions and connect with professionals succeeding in their fields.
The ‘Creative Industries Loan and Content Creation’ session hosted by Invest Atlanta and the City of Atlanta’s Film and Entertainment Office appealed to entrepreneurs within the film, music, entertainment, and fashion industries. Invest Atlanta asked content creators “how are local content creators getting access to the money being generating in the city from the film and entertainment industry?” Thus, leading to the announcement of the $1.2 million Creative Industries Loan Program. You can learn more about the fund and how to apply here.
Founder and Publisher of Rolling Out’s parent company Steed Media Group, Munson Steed kept the audience energized, promoting a healthy dose of optimism, reality, education, and wisdom.
Day two of the conference began with a conversation led by Chief Diversity Officer at eBay, Damien Hopper-Campbell. Followed by more engaging breakout sessions and a discussion around mental health and going through your process with radio personality and author, Charlamagne Tha God. RIDE is a skill-building conference gathering innovative influencers in media, business, and tech to empower the next generation of digital leaders. The conference succeeds in its mission.
