An unforgettable experience where young minds discover how Ayn Rand’s ideas can help you upgrade your thinking, improve your life, and change the world.

AynRandCon is an annual three-day conference where the best young minds come together to explore Ayn Rand’s ideas.

Whether you’ve just finished The Fountainhead or Atlas Shrugged or spent years studying Rand’s work, AynRandCon is the best place to deepen your understanding of the challenging and inspiring ideas embodied by Rand’s heroes—ideas like the supremacy of reason, the virtue of selfishness, the meaning of freedom, and the morality of capitalism.

AynRandCon opens a world of opportunity to delve deep into the thought of one of history’s most important thinkers under the guidance of some of the world’s leading experts on Rand’s philosophy, Objectivism. And it’s your chance to learn how to use that philosophy to improve your thinking, your life, and your world. It’s a conference you don’t want to miss.
