About This Track

Changing the world is about more than building cool startups with disruptive technologies that exclude 99% of the market. It's about having the courage to believe that innovation, technology, and business can be powerful forces for good.
This inspiring and eye-opening track brings together some of the world's most successful social innovators. People who aren't just talking about social responsibility; they're actually doing it.
You'll learn creative new ways to make a difference at a personal level, applying your unique skills and talents to the issues you care about most. You'll hear from corporations that are reinventing corporate social responsibility to engage employees, improve the bottom line, and make the world a better place. And you'll discover innovative new business models that blur the lines between for-profit and non-profit, using market-driven forces to improve the world in more sustainable ways.
Along the way, we'll explore innovative new strategies for tackling issues like poverty, healthcare, equality, financial inclusion, and the environment. You'll hear groundbreaking ideas from business leaders, technology experts, and investors. Ideas that challenge the status quo and force you to think differently.
Making the world a better place is an obligation all of us share. It's also an incredible privilege. There's never been a better time to be a social innovator, and we can't wait to share these exciting new insights with you!
