About AKADEMY
AKADEMY is the Intellectual Members' Circle uniting those who seek personal betterment through the power of education. The platform champions the world's academics, creatives, thought and business leaders in a calendar of curated events and exceptional lectures in a wide range of disciplines from art to science, tech to nature, fashion to wellness, politics to philosophy. This rich programming championing unparalleled-access fuels the community's thirst to enrich their worlds and evolve their wisdom, nourishing the minds of today's Intelligentsia.
The AKADEMY ethos is one that reflects theories that date back over 2000 years.
Like Plato, whose philosophy of four big ideas encouraged personal fulfillment and betterment, AKADEMY mirrors this singular vision structuring itself around four similar core brand pillars.
