XVii-SDG 2 Summit and Design Workshop Agenda & Participants (dragged) 1.jpg

Impact Entrepreneur Center's 2-day thought leadership summit and solutions design forum, which launches IE's new XVii Program Series, will be held at harvest time (mid-September) in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. The invitation-only program is designed for thought-leading entrepreneurs, investors and scholars who are passionate about translating the social and environmental challenges outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2 into viable businesses, and successfully capitalizing those businesses from start-up to maturity.

IEC has several partners for this event, including HeroX, a crowdsourcing solutions design platform. An important goal of this XVii program will be to design and articulate a solutions challenge related to SDG 2, which will be posted on Impact Entrepreneur's section of HeroX's platform and circulated to the community of entrepreneurs who are members of Impact Entrepreneur's global network. Once a winner to the challenge is chosen, IEC will support the winner(s) in incubating the winning solution from concept to launched business.
