Event Details

Peter Samuelson, Revenge of the Nerds, Starlight Starbright Foundation

Charles Dickens once wrote "Mankind is my Business." No entrepreneur better represents that ethos than Peter Samuelson. A successful film producer whose credits include legendary films such as "Revenge of the Nerds" and "Arlington Road," Peter has dedicated much his life to social entrepreneurship. In 1982, inspired by a young boy battling an inoperable brain tumor, Peter founded the Starlight Children’s Foundation, building it into an international charity dedicated to granting wishes for seriously ill children, that has to date raised and deployed more that $1 billion internationally to help more than 60 million seriously ill children . In 1990, Peter brought together leaders including Steven Spielberg and General Norman Schwarzkopf to create the STARBRIGHT Foundation —a charity dedicated educating and empowering children to cope with the medical, emotional and social challenges of their illness, which included the world’s first and longest continuously running fully interactive social network, Starbright World, that delivers video, sound, text and avatar - based communication to hospitalized children. In 1999, he founded First Star Inc.  , a charity headquartered in Washington, D.C. that works to improve the public health, safety, and family life of America’s abused and neglected children. In 2005 Samuelson founded EDAR (Everyone Deserves A Roof) Inc.  to develop and distribute a mobile, single-user structure which in the daytime serves as a purpose-built recycling vehicle while at night time transforming into a comfortable tented bed enclosure. If you want to launch a company that enriches the world and changes people's lives for the better, you will not want to miss this event. This is a paid event!
