Raising the Bar is a worldwide initiative aimed at making education a part of a city’s popular culture. We create one of a kind, knowledge-driven events in unusual locations. Our goal is to raise the bar on the content people consume in their everyday lives.


We are citizens of New York City. We are aspiring actors, doctors, economists, writers, and artists. Although we're all different, we share a passion for constant innovation and change. We want to always be learning. We want to constantly be inspired, inside and outside of the classroom. That's why we decided to bring the city's brightest minds to the last place you would expect them: in your neighborhood bar. So grab a beer and come learn how to build a spaceship.



Shoot us an email to learn more about the potential partnerships and our awesome sponsorship packages. 


We are looking for event volunteers-and if you're awesome, you're welcome on board.
We are currently on the lookout for
production fighters, PR wizards,
photographers and techies.
