    Purpose-driven entrepreneurship and impact investing are on the rise and a double bottom line of profit and social impact is emerging in the technology industry. What are the future scenarios ahead of us? The Impact Entrepreneurship Initiative gathers entrepreneurs, investors, policy-makers, and other stakeholders from around the world at the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit to discuss how to mainstream technology entrepreneurship that tackles social and environmental challenges while generating profit. The initiative includes nineteen working groups focused on designing the future of specific industries, markets and projects.


    Participants include official Global Entrepreneurship Summit delegates selected from around the world by the White House, as well as established leaders from the Silicon Valley and the World Economic Forum communities of Global Shapers, Young Global Leaders, Technology Pioneers and Schwab Social Entrepreneurs selected by the initiative's organizing committee.
