The Social Innovation Summit is an annual event that represents a global convening of black swans and wayward thinkers. Where most bring together luminaries to explore the next big idea, we bring together those hungry not just to talk about the next big thing, but to build it.

We look forward to bringing together top executives and thought leaders from around the globe to discuss opportunities for leveraging technology & innovation to affect social change. Attendees will discuss philanthropic trends, analyze innovative approaches for problem solving and build lasting partnerships that enable them and their organizations to discover new methods of engaging with social challenges.
