The NEXUS India Silicon Valley Forum was held in the Bay Area, January 31st- February 2nd 2017. The Forum was an exclusive, invitation-only conference convening emerging leaders in: human rights, climate change, sustainable development, fair trade, health and well-being, agriculture and farming, animal rights, peace, security, ethical fashion and social justice issues.

bisman-deauThe Silicon Valley Forum was a uniquely varied and interactive program of panels, workshops and social activities that will explore how philanthropy, impact investing and social entrepreneurship are all being harnessed to create a Sustainable India. NEXUS India gathered visionaries from India and our greater diaspora communities from across the globe to understand how the innovative spirit of the tech community can serve as a beacon to other philanthropists, impact investors, civic leaders and titans of industry to build our Sustainable India. We sought to understand how to leverage impact with a network that convenes young South Asian leaders from around the world to transform ideas, plans and resources into scalable and sustainable solutions for South Asia’s most intractable issues.
