The Aid Industry was once easy to understand: donors gave to charities or hired contractors to implement projects designed in places like Washington, DC, and London. Just a few countries and institutions dominated this industry. Today, global development is a complex ecosystem. People are designing their own ways out of poverty. International organizations are learning to use market-based and human-centered-design approaches. Corporations and social enterprises are connecting their expertise and mission–not just their philanthropic dollars–to solve some of the world’s toughest challenges. And we’re measuring all of it based not on inputs like how much money we spent, but on results.
Approximately 100 leaders from across the global development industry will come together in a dynamic and interactive program–including the launch of a new report–to listen, learn, and engage with each other about how to best collaborate with social entrepreneurs to channel their systems-change approaches and practices into solving increasingly complex global challenges.
