The World Summit of Innovation & Entrepreneurship (theWSIE) will be held in New York City in September, and as a strategic partner for TheWSIE, Akira Foundation calls for social innovators and entrepreneurs to join.

TheWSIE was launched at United Nations in 2006. Supported by three UN agencies including UNDP along with International Chamber of Commerce, African Union, and multinationals like PepsiCo, Boeing, CNBC, and Microsoft, the first theWSIE took place at the historic city of Muscat, Oman, and has been held every other year with over 70 countries attended.

Held on September 28-30, 2014, in New York City, under the support of Harvard Business Review, Wyss Institute at Harvard, IBM, Cisco, BT, Nasdaq, and many multinationals, theWSIE on “Creative Everywhere,” “Mobility for Digital Life” and “Livability = Sustainability+” will showcase how to balance the conflict between “the three most pressing consumer-led and citizen-oriented forces”: “the drive to co-create; the desire for mobility; and the demand for livability.”
