As the pace of technology change increases, there’s never been a greater need to focus on what it takes to build a digital economy that works for everyone, everywhere. On October 21st, we’re looking forward to hearing inspiring new ideas and creating partnerships that advance equitable and sustainable economic growth around the world with a community of purpose-driven leaders in the private sector, governments and non-profits. Our goal is to shine a spotlight on innovative, data-driven and commercially scalable solutions.

● Lift up specific strategies to grow markets and economies in ways that bring expanded opportunity to more people and places;
● Bring together corporate leaders, entrepreneurs and social change agents, thought leaders, influencers, and policymakers to showcase and amplify stories of impact from the frontlines of inclusive growth;
