9th Sankalp Global Summit : Post Event Report

Sustainable Development Goals have mobilized companies, governments and civil society in a cross-sector collaborative manner that we have never seen before. But the question remains: will we attain the SDGs by 2030? Importantly, what impact will they have on quality of life for those currently lacking access to basic needs? Can quality of life become a human right with social defaults that ensure physical and mental well-being? What are the choices that we must make today to ensure this?

At this years Sankalp Global Summit, held on December 7-8, 2017 in Mumbai, we set out to answer some of these important questions. The conference theme focused on issues around Social Defaults, the notion that we must deliberately work to ensure all people are guaranteed access to education, health, food, and good work as foundational human rights.

700+ entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, corporates, academics, policy makers, and other thought-leaders joined together to engage collaboratively around pressing topics including innovative finance, the future of work, the future of food, access to energy, and building a new health economy.

Insights and perspectives from thematic tracks and spotlight speakers are shared throughout this report. As we begin to prepare for Sankalp Global Summit 2018, our 10th anniversary convening, we look forward to brainstorming with you about how we can continue the conversation and set the agenda within the impact entrepreneurship space going in
