Global Impact Summit

The THRIVE Global Impact Summit will bring together over 500 global leaders and entrepreneurs from across the agrifood industry to tackle some of the world’s most critical challenges.

This premier industry gathering which is aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and key themes of COP27, will focus on disruptive innovation and transformational solutions that have the potential for global impact.

At THRIVE we are passionate about playing our part to spur the collective change needed to create a more sustainable, prosperous, inclusive, healthy and equitable future for us all and that is why we launched our THRIVE Global Impact Challenge – a global search for the most innovative startups who are advancing a more sustainable future for agriculture.

The event will feature lively panel discussions and keynote speeches from leading industry experts and we’ll round out the day with pitches from the top six startup companies selected from our global pool of 500+ applicants.

In addition to the rich content and lively debate the summit will generate unparalleled networking opportunities.
