The 2nd annual Nexus USA Youth Summit convened January 13-15, 2016 in Washington, DC, bringing together young philanthropists, impact investors, policy leaders and allies – including family business members, successful entrepreneurs and inspiring social change leaders. They discussed the challenges facing our country today, innovative solutions to them, and policy as an avenue for social change.

Connecting the financial, intellectual, creative, political and social capital of our generation in an action-oriented, solutions-focused and safe space, the Nexus USA Youth Summit aimed to inspire learning and collaboration between a uniquely powerful network of peers.

A varied and interactive program of panels, workshops and social activities explored philanthropy, impact investing and social entrepreneurship as well as the challenges of wealth stewardship, family dynamics, strategies for investing and attracting investment, political transformation, and more.
