You're Invited to Join Opportunity International for the 2017 National Summit in Chicago

For the first time in our lives, the end to extreme poverty is within reach. Global citizens like you are the key to creating opportunities for entrepreneurs who want to work their way out of poverty —forever. Philanthropists and thought leaders will explore how to develop new pathways out of poverty through innovations that are accelerated by technology and grounded in client service. This is your opportunity to engage with industry experts, Opportunity leadership and fellow supporters who are driving this work and changing the world.

Event Schedule

Join us from October 27-29 in downtown Chicago! 

  • Kick off the weekend with dinner on Friday night at the Loews Chicago Hotel. We will begin with a cocktail reception at 6:00pm, followed by the dinner and program at 7:00pm.
