The Mission

The mission of Summit Series, Summit's flagship event series, is to unite the leaders of today and tomorrow in surreal settings and immersive experiences designed to catalyze positive personal and collective growth.

The community we serve — a collection of entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, artists, scientists, athletes, and other change makers — is at the heart of everything we do. Through an annual conference, we set the stage for these people to forge lifelong friendships, spawn new business ideas, tackle global issues, and, in turn, make our world a better place.

Rope swings and robots. New media platforms and old-school conversation. A vibrant tent village served as home base for the four-day excursion. Attendees participated in engaging dialogues and workshops in an enchanted forest, and explored the wilderness through adventure activities. At Summit Outside, attendees returned to nature to rediscover adventure in a spectacular setting designed to foster personal, professional, and altruistic growth.
