Michael Phelps to Speak at Forbes Under 30 Summit in Boston
Aly Raisman won’t be the only Olympian at the Forbes Under 30 Summit next week.
The magazine announced on Tuesday that Raisman’s former Lip Sync Battle foe Michael Phelps has joined the star-studded lineup of speakers for this year’s conference, which takes place in Boston October 16 to 19. The most decorated Olympic athlete of all time is scheduled to speak during an event titled “Olympian to Entrepreneur” on October 18.
Phelps is one of several new additions to the already stacked list of business moguls and celebrity guests. Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, NBA Commissioner Emeritus David Stern, DraftKings founder Jason Robins, and a slew of others have also been added to next week’s lineup.
Forbes previously announced that several high-profile speakers will attend the summit, including Sir Richard Branson, Deepak Chopra, Martellus Bennett, Ashton Kutcher, Maria Sharapova, Chrissy Teigen, Bobby Flay, and Jessica Alba. Gov. Charlie Baker, Mayor Marty Walsh, and former Gov. Michael Dukakis will be attending the festivities as well.
The Under 30 Summit kicks off on Sunday with a special music festival, featuring performances by Jason Derulo, Halsey, Gallant, and Delta Rae.
The Forbes Under 30 Summit comes to Boston October 16-19. For more information, check out under30summit.com.
