Local Innovators Tackling Global Challenges

November 9 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Atlanta has become a hotbed for technology, a vibrant ecosystem benefiting from a cycle of growth, exit and reinvestment and amplified by a shining international reputation.

But to what end? Beyond building wealth for a few, how can what’s made in ATL positively impact citizens living here and around the globe?

In a city known for both civil rights history and vast income inequality, answering these questions has taken on a new urgency of late.

Join Global Atlanta and Atlanta International School at the downtown Atlanta headquarters of CARE for breakfast and a celebration of local companies launching globally applicable innovations that tackle some of society’s most intractable problems.

In addition to an expert panel discussion over breakfast, we’ll hear from AIS students learning to commercialize their own innovations and launch a special Global Atlanta issue featuring Atlanta companies in the following arenas:

  • Tackling the plastic crisis
  • Unlocking generosity
  • Energy generation and storage
  • Protecting kids online
  • Growing financial inclusion

Who should attend:

  • Impact investors
  • Ecosystem leaders
    Tech startups
  • Professional service providers
  • Nonprofit leaders
  • Educators looking for industry partnerships
