Partnerships are critical to multiply impact and the RISE Summit has been designed to deepen and widen the development agenda by bringing together the 4 key stakeholder groups-Government, Corporate, NGOs and Academia. Since 2013, the effort has been to catalyze the socio-environomic space, and this grows with every passing year.

The 5th edition of the RISE Summit will be held from September 18th to 22nd, 2017 across Mumbai and Pune. The theme for RISE Summit 2017- “Co-create Our World”, underlines an eclectic agenda across five days that will focus on interfacing Governments and Government initiatives. Beyond an UnConference, the RISE Summit is unique in that there are no panels or presentations. Instead a non-hierarchical, interactive format with a collaborative design is attended by over 300 participants from across India and beyond. This year will see the launch of the RISE World Gallery and Knowledge Collective.

The Knowledge Collective and World Gallery will be released at the inaugural gala dinner of the RISE Summit at the World Trade Centre on September 18th, 2017. The dinner will be attended by a select audience from Government, Embassies, Consulates, Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Think-tanks, Development Sector, and Academia.

The RISE Summit is the result of a collective effort of our Round Table and Chat-table Partners such as UN Global Compact, Ambuja Cement Foundation, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, Sandvik Asia and the Swedish Institute. Some of our Workshop, Tour and other Partners include SKF India, Suzlon, Ashoka Changemakers, TSCFM, Thomson Reuters Foundation, IBG, Laadli, Apnalaya, Shop for Change, Evaluation Community of India, AIAI and World Trade Centre.
