2018 NEXUS Latin America Summit

join us to help catalyze Change in Latin America

The inaugural NEXUS Latin America Summit will convene on September 27-28, 2018 in Quito, Ecuador, cohosted along with local partners IMPAQTO and Endeavor Ecuador. In spanish, this year’s Summit is also known regionally as the Cumbre Latinoamericana de Inversión de Impacto – CLIIQ.

Nestled in the Andes mountains in an urban retreat setting many of Latin America’s young social change leaders, family business members, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, investors and civil society leaders will come together to discuss and explore solutions to pressing issues facing Latin American countries and the world.

The three pillars we will cover include environmental and social development through social entrepreneurship from the Amazon to the Andes, urban entrepreneurship improving livelihoods in cities, and impact investment + philanthropy as paths to creating lasting change in the region. We will be joined by 25 top social entrepreneurs from the Andean region, presenting innovative solutions to our most challenging social and environmental challenges.

The intimate two day gathering is designed for participants to learn about  and engage in a diverse range of relevant social and environmental issues in South America but also move forward in their own personal journeys of self care, personal development and impact.
