Now in its eighth year, the Innovate Raleigh Summit convenes a diverse group of entrepreneurs, business leaders, and engaged citizens from across our region for a conversation about the most important elements that will contribute to our community’s success. This year, we will take a close look at how global trends like climate change, population growth, the urban-rural divide, and AI will impact our region over the next 30 years. We will explore topics like the future of entrepreneurship, equitable economic development,  transportation, and sustainable development. These are areas in which strong, forward-thinking leadership and innovative thinking are paramount to our community’s success. The Summit will serve as a catalyst for ideas for our innovation community and will connect to the work of our partners in government, academia, and in the private sector.

Hosted by Paradigm Innovation
The Innovation Summit is a conference that brings together business owners, thought leaders, change makers and entrepreneurs to discuss, challenge, and learn about innovation in a cross-disciplinary environment. This year's focus is on sustainability—a word with many facets that is far too often-used as a blanket description. We invite you to challenge and define sustainability as it relates to individual industries and as it relates to socio-cultural, economic, and ecological initiatives. Engage-in interactive talks with audience-generated content, join-in hands-on workshops with resources as takeaways, and connect with industry experts in an accessible, open forum. Let's go beyond the conversation and take the first steps to break barriers, build relationships, and forge a better future.
