We’re witnessing the growing movement of innovative wavemakers who are working collaboratively across public, private and not-for-profit sectors to solve a wide range of societal challenges. How can these new partnerships close the gap between what citizens need and what governments have traditionally provided, in a way that benefits all involved? Meet the people and organizations at the center of this shift and learn what works in these new public-private partnerships through a series of lightening round talks. Everyone will be able to engage in the discussion using innovative collaboration and polling tools. 

Join us in the Globe Theater for a dynamic discussion with top thinkers on public-private partnerships and social innovation

  • New business models for public value: How to create new approaches – often built on disruptive technologies – to solve old problems in new ways
  • Making partnerships work: What real-world strategies are working for innovators on the front lines in the federal government, Fortune 500 companies, social enterprises, academia and foundations
  • Accelerating solution ecosystems: How to engage and mobilize a wide network toward shared objectives of societal impact
