A global network of leaders dedicated to building sustainable solutions to poverty.
Opportunity Collaboration annually convenes 400 global leaders building sustainable solutions to poverty. We engage social entrepreneurs, innovative nonprofit executives, grant-makers, impact investors, corporate & academic field-leaders, and aligned media working around the world to solve common challenges and spark new opportunities.
Predicated on the powerful idea that out of fragmentation can come collaboration, from diversity can come unity, and from cross-fertilization can come innovation: the power of collaboration does not presume a single outcome. Rather, it draws its power from the conviction that people of good will forge their own solutions, directions and alliances, and uncover new ways to combine and leverage resources.
