The 2014 event saw leaders from philanthropy, development, academia, business and government coming together in London.

They discussed what it really takes to deliver positive social impact, ensure sustainability and accelerate scalable progress for communities around the world.

At the inaugural Forum, President Bill Clinton was presented with the first ever Philanthropreneurship Prize for his groundbreaking work with the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).

“I had the best time working with you all – it went off literally without a hitch and all the feedback I’ve received has been nothing but glowing – from the flow, the calmness, the professionalism, the look and feel… All of it! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.”
