and Business (June 24-28, 2024)

This summer, immerse yourself in a transformative seminar dedicated to exploring the profound impact of Ayn Rand's philosophy on personal development and business success.  

Join us for a deep dive into Objectivism, Rand's revolutionary philosophy that champions reason, individualism, and the pursuit of one's own happiness as the highest moral purpose of life. 

Why Ayn Rand?

Ayn Rand's novels, such as "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead," have inspired millions with their themes of independence, integrity, and innovation. Beyond these stories, her philosophy of Objectivism offers a powerful framework for personal growth and effectiveness in the business world. In a time of rapid change and challenge, Rand's emphasis on rational thinking, ethical egoism, and the role of the individual in creating value is more relevant than ever.

Capitalism and the Voluntary Society
(July 14-20, 2024)

What if we took one week to examine the idea of a society based only on voluntary cooperation? Just one week to question what we have been told our entire lives: that a purely voluntary society is neither possible nor good. 

This summer, dive into an enlightening seminar that challenges us to think about how freedom of choice, mutual benefit, and personal responsibility – all key pieces of a voluntary society – are fostered by the economic system of capitalism. Explore the heart of capitalism and how it is the embodiment of a modern voluntary society. 

Experience Capitalism in a New Light

  • Enlightening Talks: Gain insights from respected economists, philosophers, and business leaders who view capitalism as a voluntary societal structure. 
  • Interactive Discussions: Participate in roundtable discussions and debates focusing on the principles of voluntary exchange, market freedom, and ethical business practices. 
  • Engaging Workshops: Take part in practical workshops illustrating how capitalism encourages voluntary cooperation and individual autonomy. 

Enjoy These Ongoing Special Highlights

  • Networking Opportunities: Connect with a diverse array of professionals, academics, and enthusiasts who share your interest in the principles of a voluntary society. 
  • Innovation Hub: Experience firsthand how entrepreneurial ventures and startups embody the spirit of voluntarism in capitalism. 
  • Jobs & Internships: Employers are looking for people like you. All participants will receive a free account from the #1 site for Freedom-Aligned employers: Redballoon.work.

This seminar is more than an academic exploration; it's a platform to practically understand how capitalism as a voluntary society leads to innovation, prosperity, and personal freedom.
