Meet Our Amazing Speakers

No live stream. No Youtube videos. No laptops or phones allowed during talks. Misfit events are like live theatre. In 2013, we scavaged the globe in search of the most remarkable humans on the planet, and bribed them into coming to Fargo.

The People

Misfit events are deliberately small by design, but incredibly diverse. In 2013, we had attendees from 7 countries and 16 states. Artists. Dog Trainers. Filmmakers. Accountants. Designers. Engineers. Authors. Sculptors. Photographers. Creative Directors and even a Blacksmith from Ireland. All with a common ethos to live Life with intention, and to do work that truly matters.

The Experience

No shitty conference food or drab cocktails. No lukewarm coffee or boring speakers. To us, Misfit events are our kinetic art projects. Every detail is deliberate and
every element is handcrafted.

Our Local Partners

Fargo is a geographical misfit. It is town of artists and craftspeople, burgeoning with creativity in the middle of the Midwest. It was the perfect place for the inaugural Misfit event.
