What is Lucid?

“Lucid is – hosting live events in a dinner-lounge setting, featuring a handful of diverse innovators from various disciplines. After the talks, which last 10-15 minutes each, the small audiences mingle with the presenters and one another. The result is what you make of it – MENSA style thinkers’ club, mellow networking event, brainy dating opportunity – or a mix of all three. Whatever your angle, it’s good, smart fun and a refreshing change from the usual hipster scene offerings.”

Our mission: Create intimate, social, fun, and inspiring events which expose people to emerging ideas in action and encourage attendees to cross social and professional silos, with the hope that such ‘cross-pollination’ will create unexpected and positive results.
