NEXUS Community

Nexus community image
As a NEXUS member, you are part of a global community of young entrepreneurs, philanthropists, investors, and changemakers. NEXUS members benefit from this safe, neutral space to collaborate on solutions to the greatest issues of our time.

Today, a NEXUS member is someone who has attended a NEXUS Summit (either Regional or Global). NEXUS members are invited to apply to join all NEXUS programs, but as events are intended to expand our network and highlight collaborative efforts within our community, not all members will be accepted to participate in all events. We are committed to supporting the NEXUS community throughout the year from making introductions to facilitating access to exclusive opportunities that that amplify the important work you do. We encourage you to develop relationships with your local City Ambassador, Country Director, or Regional Director to learn more about upcoming events and other ways to engage with NEXUS.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact
