Antigua 10x Festival

November 17-19, Antigua, Guatemala

Exchange leapfrogging ideas and practices to transform communities in a sustainable way.

November 17-19, 2016

Antigua10X brings together leaders, thinkers, change-makers, advocates and entrepreneurs who live to make 10X impact a reality. Three areas of impact will be explored: Learning, Community and Business.

Join the Antigua 10X Challenge, and two days of festivities and learning, to help create organizations for exceptional impact in Central America in 2017 and beyond. 


The first part of the conference consists of a series of lightning talks given by innovators in tech, education and business. They will be sharing ideas that they've implemented to maximize results in their areas.


Go deeper into the ideas presented by the speakers through a series of panel discussions. Discover the secrets of implementing these strategies. The conversation is free-flowing among speakers, participants and the moderator.


Finally, put into practice what you've learned through hands on workshops lead by our speakers. 3 companies will be selected from our Antigua10x Challenge to be the case study for the workshops.
