Show Notes

Scott Ely incorporates aspects of his project, “Evolve Faster,” in his talk which is geared to make you think differently about how your brain functions and how it is possible to maximize the brain’s functionality.

Since graduating, Scott has been in nonstop evolution as an entrepreneur, author, explorer, musician and mind-hacker.

His journey to over 50 countries, founding of multiple businesses, and conducting of over 100 challenging life experiments now culminates in the creation of systems to help people rapidly reboot, rewire and rethink the way they live and work.

His TEDx talk is themed around his book Evolve Faster, a manifesto to hit the philosophical reset button and free our minds in preparation for what he calls society’s Next Evolution.

Scott lives in Chicago’s Bucktown neighbourhood where he can likely be found reading, writing, performing with his band, hacking startup ventures, and constantly upgrading through life experiments and travel.
