The Event

Brought to you by Philanthropy In Motion and Yale Center Beijing, the “Innovation for Impact” Summit will bring together leaders in social innovation and philanthropy to showcase ways to solve age-old problems of inequality and debate the tricky questions that every changemaker needs to think about: how to create scale, collaborate with big players in governments and businesses, balance mission and money, and more. Focusing on the potential of the next generation, new types of socially conscious enterprise, and systematic solutions to long-standing problems of inequality, speakers from a diverse array of backgrounds will offer their experiences and unique insights to inspire the next generation.
