The Like Minds Nudge Ideas Festival is supported by:
Talisker Whisky Atlantic Rowing Challenge
This year we are giving 10% of our ticket sales to support Guy Rigby and David Murray on their row across the Atlantic in the Entrepreneurship. The purpose of their challenge is to raise awareness of the benefits of entrepreneurship in all its aspects while focusing on the development of social entrepreneurs and raising funds for a charity that finds, funds and supports them.
The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is an epic challenge, Guy and David will set off to row the 3,000 miles from the Canaries to Antigua in December 2021. They hope to arrive in February 2022. If they are successful, as records currently stand, they will be the oldest pair ever to row any ocean.
