The Winter Innovation Summit is the premier cross-industry event in social impact, innovation, and investing. The 2018 Summit brought together policymakers, funders, nonprofits, and social entrepreneurs to explore the future of social innovation across the globe. EIG joined this exciting cadre of thinkers to explore the latest breakthroughs in social impact, innovation, and investing, and experienced the 2018 Sundance Film Festival along the way.

EIG took part in a plenary session, “Opportunity Zones: A New National Community Investment Program,” to discuss how the recently enacted federal tax reform legislation includes an important provision—the “Investing in Opportunity Act”—that creates a new capital gains incentive for private investment into low income urban and rural communities around the country. Jeremy Keele facilitated this conversation with Economic Innovation Group co-founders John Lettieri and Steve Glickman.
