THE SUMMIT MANIFESTO

Great communities are founded on the Principle that In Working Together, Individuals Can Create A Whole Far Greater Than The Sum Of Its Parts.

 
 

Community shapes our world, from the simplest single-celled organisms to the most sophisticated social structures. It informs evolution itself.

But what does community mean today, in the era of the megalopolis? When a friend is synonymous with a digital avatar of someone you’ve never met, on a social network built by code instead of by words and deeds?

We live in a time when the power of community to change the world—and the urgent need for it to do so—is unprecedented. Influence has been democratized: Entrepreneurs, artists, innovators, and activists now drive societal change at speeds that were once unimaginable.

Summit is an organization dedicated to building community. We have devoted our life's work to Summit because there has never been a better opportunity for leaders from diverse fields to share ideas and create products, partnerships, friendships, and movements to uplift and expand our understanding of and impact on the world.
