The Social Innovation Summit is a twice annual event taking place at the United Nations and Silicon Valley, that represents a global convening of black swans and wayward thinkers. Those who are playing at the nexus of technology, investment, philanthropy, international development, and business come together to investigate solutions and catalyze inspired partnerships that are disrupting history. If we are obsessed with anything, it is great people. We convene the world's most potent leaders, thinkers, and practitioners with an unwavering bias towards action and a push towards scale. Let's be clear about one thing, we are not your average conference. 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.
