We believe that the private sector should play a critical role in creating, catalyzing, and implementing actionable solutions to the societal challenges facing a world in transition. We convene and inspire diverse global leaders to build a thriving, inclusive future — one where equality and shared prosperity go hand in hand with business growth and innovation.
We define a solution as a product, service, program, policy, or other initiative that enables the private sector to deliberately create societal good and measurable impact within one or more of our pillars–trade, technology, climate, finance and capital markets, inclusion, urbanization, and global governance.
Announcing our 2020 Solutions
We launched our new solutions at the second annual New Economy Forum in Beijing. CEOs, experts, practitioners, and policymakers are forming coalitions to collaborate on the following initiatives:
Unleash agricultural productivity
Address physical climate risk
Unlock inclusive trade
Expand access through secure digital forms of ID
Advance smart cities
Shape next-generation digital public infrastructure
Our lead collaborators submitted their outstanding solutions to our global open call in 2019, and joined the New Economy Forum as delegates to workshop tangible ways forward and to build the essential relationships that will enable success and meaningful progress:
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – represented by Michael Wiegand and Himanshu Nagpal
Global Trade Professionals Alliance – represented by Lisa McAuley
IN2, a collaboration among the Wells Fargo Foundation, the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory- represented by Mary Wenzel and James Carrington
Mastercard’s Humanitarian and Development group – represented by Raman Narayanswamy
We look forward to working with passionate and pragmatic community members on these new solutions, as well as those launched at the inaugural forum.
