WORLD-LEADING SUMMIT ON THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL INVESTMENT FOR HUMANITY

In January 2021, the Future Investment Initiative Institute hosted a hybrid virtual and physical gathering of CEOs and policymakers to celebrate a neo-renaissance of the global economy. Now, as our new collective future begins to take shape, it is more important than ever for this community to organize around the central challenge of our time — how to Invest in Humanity.

For many at the top of the economic pyramid, the pandemic unleashed new sources of wealth and economic growth. For others, it brought wid​espread social and economic challenges. Structural inequalities between rich and poor and developed and emerging economies are unsustainable. How can leaders from business and government leverage the transformations of the past year to ensure progress, prosperity, and opportunity for all? Join us to participate in shaping a prosperous, sustainable future for Humanity.
