Welcome to the Next Gen Summit, the premier global community and first conference built for young entrepreneurs, by young entrepreneurs.

We believe that young people have the power to change the world - they just need the right tools. That's what we are here for. We aim to provide the resources and guidance necessary for both personal and professional success.

Since 2014, the Next Gen Summit has been the premier conference for the world's most creative and intelligent young game-changers to connect and collaborate in-person. 

The 2016 Next Gen Summit welcomed 500 attendees from 6 continents, nearly 2 dozen investors backed by $1.6 billion in capital and over 30 industry-leading speakers.

We had MIT admissions officers and college dropouts; Shark-Tank superstars and Forbes writers; high-school students and $400M founders. NGS welcomed politicians and scientists from Switzerland and China; inventors and authors from Peru and Australia. We had hundreds of our family - the NGS family - laughing, learning, and experiencing together.

More than 2.5 million folks engaged with us online, and we hit the #2 trending topic on Twitter.

The 2017 Next Gen Summit, held this coming June in New York City, will bring new faces to share their stories of triumph in a weekend you will never forget.
