What is Global Innovation Coop Summit?

Global Innovation Coop Summit creates a space dedicated to cooperative leaders from all sectors to share, exchange, learn and build together a more inclusive plural economy.

This event will address new trends in the fields of social, technological and managerial innovation.

By discussing innovative ideas, the Summit aims to inspire, promote and foster the development of cooperative enterprises around the globe.

Core Values

Since 2020, our virtual events have explored new trends in technological and social innovation aiming to prepare and inspire cooperative leaders to be more agile, creative and resilient.

The pandemic has exacerbated inequalities producing economic, societal and environmental problems. It has pushed companies to the limits of their ingenuity. Organizations that have been able to adapt quickly to workforce losses, supply chain disruptions, go-to-market pressures and rapidly changing customer expectations have survived. The profound changes left in the wake of the pandemic raises many challenges that involve societal, climatic, leadership and technological transitions. This has major impacts on our business model. Are we ready for these challenges?

Speakers will share what they believe can provide the best opportunities to build a better, more inclusive, more responsible and environmentally friendly world.
