GLOBAL INVESTMENT GAME CHANGERS SUMMIT: Pioneering solutions for a better world

New ideas can transform the world we live in and rewrite the rules and policies that govern it. Mobilizing investment and channeling it towards the SDGs require above all new ideas that can be translated into concrete solutions for a better future for all.
