When people leave Florida Studio Theater on Nov. 6, Anand Pallegar wants them to feel energized and to be brimming with new ideas. That is the whole premise behind the inaugural PINC.Sarasota event, which in less than two weeks will take over the theater in downtown Sarasota for a whole day.
What do a British arctic explorer, an ESPN and CNN journalist, anengineer and filmmaker from Bhutan, a digital asset director at Nickelodeon, a founder of a Swiss idea factory and 12 other international innovators have in common? If you have no clue, then you haven’t heard of PINC.Sarasota.
People tend to categorize themselves by a multitude of different characteristics: height, ethnicity, humor, hometown, what they majored in, what instrument they play, how big their family is, and so on. But, I think we can all agree that what counts as the most defining quality one can possess is which of the two categories you fall into: live to eat or eat to live.
On Nov. 6, PINC—which stands for people, ideas, nature and creativity—comes to Sarasota, the first time the gathering will be held outside the Netherlands. Nelleke co-founded PINC with her husband, Peter, who died almost two years ago, and continues their vision to extend PINC’s reach.
