Event Overview

ii2030 will bring together innovators from corporates, startups, the public sector, NGOs and science to create solutions for a more inclusive society by 2030.

The Challenge

Inclusion is the Number 1 challenge of tomorrow. Increasing inequality reduces growth and leads to social and economic instability. Climate change creates risks for many of the worlds poorest. Population growth exacerbates present issues of access to basic services and income. We need to innovate to create opportunity for all.

The Solution

Coupling inclusive innovation with technological advances can unlock opportunities that enable companies and other actors and to turn global challenges into opportunities for growth. Taking a future perspective and acting upon it today will ensure that we are better able to use these technologies to achieve greater inclusion and growth by 2030.
