The 2013 Igniting Innovation Summit on Social Entrepreneurship
The Igniting Innovation Summit on Social Entrepreneurship is the largest undergraduate-run conference on social innovation in the Northeastern United States. The conference unites students, academics, and leaders in the field who are passionate about developing innovative solutions to today's most pressing problems. Over the past three years, the Summit has grown from a small-scale initiative of Harvard students to a nationally recognized forum for social change.

The fourth annual Summit will explore wide-ranging themes, from women's empowerment, to global health, to mass movements online, through TED-style talks, topic-specific discussion panels, practical skill-development workshops, and an Innovation Showcase. Attendees this year will enjoy keynote addresses by Tracy Paladijan, CEO of Social Finance USA, John Paul DeJoria, founder of Paul Mitchell and the Patron Spirits Company, and Arnoud Raskin, founder of Streetwize and the Mobile School. The annual Summit has been featured on Forbes.com and DoSomething.org, and has hosted guests such as David Gergen of CNN and Cheryl Dorsey of Echoing Green.

In addition, the Summit attracts talented young entrepreneurs from around the nation through its Social Venture Challenge, hosted in collaboration with The Resolution Project. The Challenge allows Summit attendees to build teams and submit their plans for actual social ventures, in America or abroad, that make a positive impact today. Every year, The Resolution Project provides Fellowships, including grants of up to US $3,000 and personalized advisory support, to the winning teams and their ventures.
