The Summit

The second annual Igniting Innovation Summit is one of the first and largest undergraduate-led events devoted to the topic of Social Entrepreneurship. Hosted by the newly established Harvard College Social Innovation Collaborative, the conference will bring together leaders from across sectors to explore, engage, and incubate interest in the field. Because the Summit is intended for those with and without prior knowledge of Social Entrepreneurship, it is designed to present a diversity of perspectives through a dynamic series of TED style speeches, interactive panels and action-oriented workshops led by top experts.

The surging interest in Social Entrepreneurship on college campuses and the need for innovation to solve today's greatest problems inspired the conference theme: "Embracing the Social Entrepreneurship Movement: Get up and do something!" In honor of the theme, the conference will explore the many angles of the movement, from academic models to modes of application to physical action. No long lectures at this conference!

The first 100 registrants will also be invited to attend a kickoff event on Friday evening, Sept 30, featuring a panel hosted by CNN's David Gergen, a documentary screening hosted by the Executive Director of Women Make Movies and refreshments with top speakers.
