LOOKING BACK

We were thrilled to host the 3rd annual Winter Innovation Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah, on January 25–27.

The Summit has become the preeminent social impact and innovation convening bringing together hundreds of thought leaders, policymakers, funders, nonprofits, social entrepreneurs, and academics from around the globe. 

Key themes included social impact financing, the role of data and evidence, impact investing, public-private partnerships, impact measurement, and research-based best practices in social services. 

Presented by the Sorenson Impact Center and Salt Lake County, in partnership with Sundance Institute, the Summit combined cutting-edge content in social impact with Sundance Film Festival screenings and a day of skiing the greatest snow on earth.

We hope that you will join us for next year's Summit.
