Each year, nearly 1,000 of the world’s most influential social entrepreneurs, key thought leaders and strategic partners gather at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School to exchange ideas, solutions and information. The Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship is the premier international platform for advancing entrepreneurial approaches and solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. This three-day, invitation-only event begins today, April 15th, 2015. Jake Harriman is attending on behalf of Nuru International.
“Ending extreme poverty in our lifetime will only happen if the sector is able to collaborate strategically,” says Jake Harriman, Founder and CEO of Nuru International. “The Skoll World Forum provides a tremendous opportunity to make high level collaboration possible. Nuru International is excited to engage in the conversation at large, share about the progress we’ve made and learn from others’ successes.”
The 2015 theme, “Belief,” will explore the intersections among belief, innovation, and progress. Featured speakers include Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Mrs. Graça Machel, Bassem Youssef, Zak Ebrahim, Ophelia Dahl, Ken Brecher, Darren Walker, Jacqueline Novogratz, and many more luminaries who will present their experience and perspectives across 60 sessions.
Those not attending in person can engage via live-streaming and live-blogging on SkollWorldForum.org/live starting at 17:00 UK time (GMT+1) on Wednesday, April 15th; engage online via the Debate & Series; and join the conversation on Twitter using #SkollWF.
