INNOVATORS FORUM (GSIF)
Catalyzing Social Impact
GSIF, launched in 2006, is a pioneering platform where global and regional leaders unite to drive positive social innovation and impact, transcending traditional boundaries
between the Private, Public, and People Sectors.
Innovation in Collaboration
Unlike typical conferences, GSIF fosters active engagement by breaking down barriers between speakers and delegates. It's designed to spark collaboration and
cross-pollination of ideas, encouraging innovative solutions to
economic, social, and political challenges.
Empowering Social Entrepreneurs
GSIF not only drives thought leadership but also hosts social enterprise accelerator programs in collaboration with renowned organizations like McKinsey and Accenture.
This helps nurture social entrepreneurs and amplify their impact on society.
Recognizing Global Changemakers
GSIF also serves as a global platform to honor SIP Distinguished Fellows and SIP Fellows who have leveraged their influence to create positive change, setting examples
for others and contributing to societal well-being.

"This Forum (GSIF) is actually like a lovely micro-cosmic version of the Renaissance. It's people from around the world coming around, focusing on creativity, thinking about it, wanting to develop your own creativity with the help of others and multiplying it. So that the future of the world, or nation first, would be the kind of future everybody wants."

"GSIF was an eye opener for me. The enthusiasm of the various participants to develop businesses which address social causes and at the same time being viable was truly motivating. It gave me a lot to think about - it was not just the topics discussed but also the people that we met.
The experience was unique."
