The Igniting Innovation Summit unites students, academics, and leaders in the field who are passionate about developing innovative solutions to today's most pressing problems. Over the past six years, the Summit has grown from a small-scale initiative of Harvard students to a nationally recognized forum for social change. The 8th annual Summit will explore a diverse range of topics through our keynote speeches, intimate panels on how to approach our society's most pressing issues, and an Innovation Showcase to present tangible examples of social innovation. We are proud and excited to welcome Matthew Glotzbach of Quizlet and YouTube, Shama Amalean and Siobhan Lonergan of THINX, Dr. Alaa Murabit, one of United Nations' 17 Global Sustainable Development Goals Advocates, and Tyler Gage from Runa.
