The Hatchery, Emory Center for Innovation, is proud to welcome prominent Emory alumnus entrepreneur Rohit Bhargava (97B) back to campus on October 14, 2022 as the keynote speaker for The Hatchery Fall Kickoff Event. 

Rohit will return to Emory for the first time to share stories from his entrepreneurial journey and to discuss the emerging trends that all innovators and entrepreneurs should be paying attention to. He will present a keynote address followed by a Q&A at The Hatchery, October 14, 3-5pm.

Rohit Bhargava is an innovation and marketing expert, skilled facilitator, and keynote speaker. After a successful 15-year career as a brand and marketing strategist at two of the largest agencies in the world (Ogilvy and Leo Burnett), Rohit became an entrepreneur and has since started three companies. He is the three-time Wall Street Journal bestselling author of eight books on topics as wide-ranging as the future of business, building a brand with personality, and how to create a more diverse and inclusive world, and has delivered sold out keynote presentations and workshops to business leaders in 32 countries. His signature book Non-Obvious is updated annually with 15 new trend predictions, has been read and shared by more than 1 million readers, and is translated into 12 languages. Outside of his consulting work, Rohit also teaches a popular course on storytelling and marketing at Georgetown University in Washington DC, and has been invited to deliver guest lectures at many other prestigious schools including Stanford, U Penn’s Wharton School, and now Emory.

Rohit has stated that his dual studies at the Goizueta Business School (International Marketing) and the Emory College of Arts and Sciences (English Literature) helped to form the interests and skills that propelled him to become the “Non-Obvious Thinking” entrepreneur he is today—someone who has built successful publishing and innovation businesses through skills as a critical reader of trends, compelling communicator, and powerful marketer.
