Hello Future

What Is Hello Future?

The future of the global economy will be driven by careers in STEM-related fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Yet there continues to be a significant under-representation of young women and minorities in those areas. Designed to address the pipeline problem with STEM, Hello Future launches October 23 and 24, 2019 with an innovative interactive experience held at the Microsoft Theater and the Los Angeles Convention Center. The experience will ENGAGE, INSPIRE, and EMPOWER young people from middle school through college by bringing them together with today’s most disruptive entrepreneurs, tech innovators, and brands.

Leveraging off the immense success of the LA Promise Fund’s past Girls Build Summits, Hello Future will engage a broader audience — girls in middle and high school, as well as young men and women of color ages 18-24 — in partnership with the Youth Mobile Festival (YoMo) Los Angeles.

  • 10k Young People of Color
  • 200+ Schools Participating (Middle + High School)
  • Keynotes from Inspiring Speakers about STEM
  • 6+ Panels on Relevant & Exciting STEM-related Topics
  • 100s of Hours of Content
