Join us this July in the Bay Area for the World Economic Forum Young Global Leaders Silicon Valley Summit 2.0. Get an up-close look at the most powerful companies in Silicon Valley, have conversations with leaders who fund them, engage with the entrepreneurs behind exciting new start-ups, and embrace the design and innovation culture at a custom YGL session with the Stanford d.school team. You’ll also enjoy the Bay Area summer weather with outdoor evening and cocktail events with your fellow YGLs, Global Shapers, and special guests!
Please note that this event is by invitation-only and can accommodate up to 125 registrants from the YGL community. As space is very limited, we are not able to accommodate spouses and/or friends. The event will be off-the-record.
