Filene is gathering its biggest and brightest in Genius Country to find the answers to life, the universe, and everything with ideas42. This year, Filene is scrapping the day and half of presentations and replacing them with a masterclass on behavioral economics. A tentative agenda and registration checklist is available on the right.

View photos from last year's big.bright.minds hosted by Filene Fellow Michael Barr at the University of Michigan .

And following big.bright.minds, we're hosting a workshop on optimizing channels for superior member experience presented by Harvard Business School professor Dennis Campbell.

A few travel notes:

  • Please refer to the checklist on the right to confirm dates and times for arrival and departure.
  • All suggested airports require additional transportation to Princeton. Cabs may be pricey, so we encouarge you to travel by train if possible. Using New Jersey Transit, attendees may be dropped off .6 miles from the hotel & meeting location.
  • Parking is available near the hotel for $20 per day.


Room Block at the Nassau Inn

The Nassau Inn has reached capacity for the dates of big.bright.minds. We recommend the Courtyard by Marriott in Princeton, which is a 2.8 mile drive from the Nassau Inn. 


big.bright.minds is a free, invitation-only event for Filene Board, Research Council, Fellows, current i3 innovators, selected Cooperative Trust members, Benefactor members, and Special Guests.
