Mission

The Innovation Summit is a conference that brings together business owners, thought leaders, change makers and entrepreneurs to discuss, challenge, and learn about innovation in a cross-disciplinary environment. This year's focus is on sustainability—a word with many facets that is far too often-used as a blanket description. We invite you to challenge and define sustainability as it relates to individual industries and as it relates to socio-cultural, economic, and ecological initiatives. Engage-in interactive talks with audience-generated content, join-in hands-on workshops with resources as takeaways, and connect with industry experts in an accessible, open forum. Let's go beyond the conversation and take the first steps to break barriers, build relationships, and forge a better future.

Empathy

We want to ensure to have an open, welcoming space where ideas are welcome and everyone is included.

Growth

We want to encourage ways for entrepreneurs and design-thinkers to flourish and provide environments to do so, both physically and digitally.

Accessibility

Open access to knowledge is imperative for making a difference. We make sure the knowledge we generate is available to everyone.

Acceptance

We believe that design and entrepreneurship cannot work together without understanding and identifying with other people’s needs.

2019's Theme

Come join us as we talk about the different kinds of sustainability in design and business, from financial and environmental sustainability to social and urban sustainability.
