Join Symbio at the Harvard Igniting Innovation Summit 2018
28 October 2018 @ 8 h 30 min - 17 h 00 min
The Igniting Innovation Summit unites students, academics, and leaders in the field who are passionate about developing innovative solutions to today’s most pressing problems. Over the past eight years, the Summit has grown from a small-scale initiative of Harvard students to a nationally recognized forum for social change.
The 9th annual Summit will explore a diverse range of topics through our keynote speeches, intimate panels on how to approach our society’s most pressing issues, and an Innovation Showcase to present tangible examples of social innovation. Our featured keynote speakers are Chinyere Nnadi, CEO of Sustainability International and Zainab Salbi, founder of Women for Women International. We hope you can join us, listen to Tawakkol Karman and other inspirational speakers, and gain the skills and network to launch your own successful social enterprises!
In the past, attendees have enjoyed keynote addresses by Paul Rice, President & CEO of Fair Trade USA, and Rick Ridgeway, Vice President of Environmental Affairs at Patagonia. The annual Summit has been featured on Forbes.com, The Guardian UK and DoSomething.org, and has hosted guests such as David Gergen of CNN, Cheryl Dorsey of Echoing Green, and John Paul DeJoria of John Mitchell Systems and The Patron Spirits Company.
