CHARLOTTE – Ever wonder how to achieve true happiness? Like most big questions in the world, there is a science behind this one.
On June 18, Discovery Place Science will host a special event exploring the road to happiness. During the second installment of the museum’s popular Think & Drink series, Chris Elmore, co-founder of the start-up technology company AvidXchange, will present “The Science of Happiness.”
During his presentation, Elmore will share his personal experiences with what he calls “hacking happiness.” The evening will also feature bites from Fresh Med, beverages from Noda Canteen and hands-on science elements that relate directly to finding happiness.
Elmore travels the country speaking on the topics of start-up success, innovation, entrepreneurship, sales, technology and automation. In 2000, he started AvidXchange, a technology company focused on offering businesses a complete solution for their accounts payable and payment automation processes.
“No matter what I am doing in life, I make sure I am finding happiness in doing it,” Elmore says. “For me, I came to realize pretty early on in life that happiness is based on relationships. I look forward to sharing more about my personal road to happiness at the upcoming Think & Drink.”
Think & Drink is a shared science experiencing featuring intimate talks from Charlotte’s most interesting thinkers, innovators and rule-breakers. Through the series, these forward thinkers invite the audience to explore the power of ideas while sharing their experiences and discoveries.
Think & Drink: The Science of Happiness will take place at Camp North End from 6 to 8 p.m. on June 18. The event is free but advance registration is required due to a limited number of seats available for the presentation. Find tickets on www.eventbrite.com.
