Our Story

"One night, after a long discussion at the bar on our way home from work, we came up with the idea for Uncharted Minds. We wanted to bring together the different ideas and people who we thought made San Francisco so interesting. The concept was simple. We would focus on great content, great speakers and produce the best events possible."
