Our Mission

Tired of attending conferences that taught us how to “dream” big but not how to “do” big, we at Behance set out to create something different in 2009. Thus the 99U Conference — a one-of-a-kind live experience fully devoted to exploring the mechanics of idea execution—was born.

Our past speakers

Since then, an incredible group of visionary creatives, entrepreneurs, and researchers have joined us to pull back the curtain on their creative process and share road-tested insights on how to make ideas happen.
