Save the date: Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway to host Pivot MIA February 14–16

Three-day event in Miami is a new type of conference that challenges convention. Featuring the biggest names in fintech, media, education, and more.

Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway, co-hosts of New York Magazine’s Pivot podcast, will debut the first-ever Pivot MIA event at the Faena and 1 Hotel in Miami Beach.

As one of America’s most vibrant cities, Miami has become a major hub for emerging startups and tech companies, making it the perfect backdrop for Swisher and Galloway’s signature rapport, dynamic discussions, and incisive observations. Over the course of three days, they’ll bring the heat with the biggest and boldest names in business and technology.

The in-person event builds on a successful virtual five-part series from Swisher and Galloway in 2020, where the podcast hosts brought their award-winning show to life with Pivot Schooled, covering how Covid-19 has transformed the global economy with guests including Sundar Pichai, CEO, Google and Alphabet, Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO, Uber, and Sarah Friar, CEO, Nextdoor.

“We heard a bunch of the most irritating Silicon Valley people had moved here and wanted to come annoy them. All kidding aside, we think Miami is an exciting place to talk about a range of fast-forward topics, from cryptocurrency to psychedelics to climate change to the future of transportation. Also, we like the beach.” —Kara Swisher

“We aim to inspire the most incisive conversations regarding the intersection of tech, business, and society in a respectful, fun environment. Pivot MIA is a chance for us to bring those values to life, in person.” —Scott Galloway

Stay tuned for speaker announcements.
