The Outcomes committee looks for opportunities for delegates to further their projects after the summit has ended. We are interested in connecting delegates to people or organizations with expertise in marketing, tech, energy, education, entrepreneurship, data analytics, crowdfunding, and more. Our goal is to create and foster these relationships in order to provide mentorships or services to the delegates’ projects to help the projects develop and reach their potential.
