About this event

Hosted by the Stanford Disruptive Technologies and Digital Cities Program

Since we held our last (sold out) conference in 2019, we have experienced a global pandemic, economic upheaval driven by constant change, a record-setting stock market ascent, blurring of the work/home divide, and the advent of continuous virtual meetings in our lives. Awareness of the interconnection between overarching factors such as climate change, technological transformation, global security and social justice is increasing at a seemingly exponential rate.

Now more then ever is the opportunity to transform new technology into solutions for all of these issues. And we have never been more optimistic about this prospect! Over $300 billion has been invested in venture startups, commercial labs, and government projects, creating an exponential explosion in innovation - an innovation ecosystem with solutions for climate change, social impact, and new health care advances. We are ready for the challenges and we want to invite you to a unique conference exploring all of this on September 9 & 12 at Stanford.

Our 2022 Conference on Next Gen Leadership, Sustainability & Social Impact leverages Stanford’s academic excellence and leadership in early-stage tech and related ESG's, bringing together thought leaders from academia, industry, and family offices in a unique two-day event exploring transformative people, technologies, and opportunities.

Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of how to leverage emerging trends in technologies for their own products, services, investments, and decision making. Speakers will include Stanford faculty from the schools of Communication, Engineering, Computer Science, Business and Law, as well as entrepreneurs, corporate executives, family office principals and social change makers. Topics will range from Mission Philanthropy to Climate Solutions, from Cybersecurity to Innovations in Sustainable Energy, from presentations by Elevate Prize Winners to presentations on Emerging Materials, Sensors and Robotics, from Predictive Analytics to Ethical &Responsible Technology Development. There will be ample opportunity to network, as well as conference rooms and breakout sessions for more private conversations.

Join us - the choices we make today will have reverberations for generations to come!
