In just four years, an invite to the breakout annual conference has become a coveted opportunity for emerging leaders in business, art, and government to co-mingle with their peers in adventurous activities and dream up ways to solve pressing social issues.
For the sixth annual Summit Series, an invite-only gathering of elite entrepreneurs held earlier this month, 1,000 attendees paid $3,500 each to board a 14-story ocean liner for a three-day cruise in the Caribbean.
What made the gathering badass was that everyone had submitted to the Summit concept of "make no small plans." Key architect and co-founder Jeff Rosenthal said that the team "are not conference organizers; we are artists."
Why not take positive steps to champion nonprofit and benevolent businesses? This is the birth of a new world, where your dollars can act as catalysts to accomplish the change that we want to see in the world.
I was very lucky to attend the Summit Series in Miami, FL. Imagined by four twenty-somethings, the Summit Series brings together young business leaders in an effort to promote collaboration and learning.
