Summit Fellows

Pay it forward 

Summit Fellows is a Summit Institute initiative supporting impact-driven leaders on the rise. The program provides emerging entrepreneurs access to Summit’s supportive community, insightful programming, and dedicated mentorship designed to accelerate their careers and amplify the impact of their work.

Over the course of a two-year Fellowship, Fellows participate in Summit events and receive valuable support from assigned mentors who align with their goals. Fellows inspire, exchange ideas with, and build relationships with Summit’s community of global leaders who become collaborators, board members, investors, mentors, and lifelong friends.

Summit Institute Labs

Bring us your social Innovation ideas...and we can co-create a lab

The Summit Institute Lab model brings the thought-leadership and entrepreneurial energy of the Summit community to bear on the big social issues of our day.

We work with leading organizations and funders to engage top impact experts in a weekend-long conversation with members of the multi-disciplinary Summit community. We drive towards tangible and far-reaching outcomes and we expose some of the top innovators and entrepreneurs of our time to world-changing ideas.

Summit Institute assembles a diverse and powerful set of players to explore and learn of cutting edge opportunities to result in real world actions. With approximately 50 participants  from a range of sectors, our weekend labs operate on the Chatham House Rule in order to facilitate an atmosphere of trust, conducive to exploring new opportunities and ideas.
