Posted by: on Jun 17, 2019 | No Comments


Businessman and economist, Rakesh Wadhwa has been invited to speak at FreedomFest, scheduled for July 17-20, 2019. The event will be hosted at Paris Resort, Las Vegas, USA. The event is expected to be attended by more than 2,000 participants and over 10,000 digital followers. FreedomFest will be an opportunity for participants to engage with more than 200 speakers and 150 exhibitors across different fields.

The event is also a great opportunity to meet with thought leaders behind the liberty movement, while also offering participants exciting investment opportunities that can enhance their portfolios, while giving them a chance to network with leading free-market thinkers and pro-liberty leaders and organizations.

Being held for more than ten years in a row, FreedomFest claims to be “the biggest liberty conference of the year, where free minds meet to celebrate great books, great ideas, and great thinkers in an open-minded environment.” This year, the theme is “The Wild West,” as the question that the event seeks to answer is: “Was the Wild West a time of liberty and opportunity? Or a time of anarchy and violence? Or both?”

Featured Speakers

Among the featured speakers at the event are leaders in their field, such as John Mackey, Co-Founder and CEO of Whole Foods. Mackey enjoys an enviable reputation, having been named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2003 and authoring two must-read books: Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business (2012) and The Whole Foods Diet: The Lifesaving Plan for Health and Longevity (2017). Mackey is an ardent supporter of free-enterprise capitalism.

The event will also see the likes of Kevin O’Leary, who is best recognized from the CBC’s Dragons’ Den. O’Leary has a remarkable reputation built on his entrepreneurial vision and drive to succeed. O’Leary is also the host of BNN’s O’Leary Live and a ‘Shark’ on the ABC show, Shark Tank.
