What's Study Hall?
Study Hall is a one-day summit for creatives who want to learn from Philly's finest leaders and entrepreneurs. Come with curiosity and leave with new strategies and knowledge for growing your business or career.
We’ll have panel sessions, strategy lightning talks, a gig exchange, and a dope happy hour party called "Recess" right after to finish off the day. Our goal is to connect attendees and create a community of people who also eat, live and breathe their passion. Whether you're a student looking to start freelancing after graduation, an artist looking for marketing ideas or an entrepreneur interested in growth hacking and community building, Study Hall is the event for you.

Did someone say PIZZA PARTY? Yeah, we did. Doors are officially open for Study Hall at noon, so come and enjoy some lunch (shoutout to &pizza!) before we start the day. We'll also have on-demand salon app, PRIV, around for some quick touchups for the men and a braid bar for the ladies.
Just some boring OPENING REMARKS from two people (Melissa Alam and Scott Silver) who both decided to name their brands "Study Hall." Great minds think alike!
