Welcome to Next Gen Summit 2019

At Next Gen, we believe in creating opportunities that lead to extraordinary possibilities. That’s why we spend the entire year building Next Gen Summit to be a hub that cultivates the knowledge, resources, mentorship, and connection entrepreneurs need to keep pushing forward.

Entrepreneurship is daunting, risky, and complicated. We’re here to support those who choose to overcome these obstacles in pursuit of something greater. We are proud to have a community that seizes opportunities to grow and learn together. Since last year’s Summit, entrepreneurs have used Next Gen resources to raise tens of millions in venture capital funding, get featured in major media outlets, access mentorship from senior executive leaders, and foster powerful new friendships. They engage to accelerate the momentum of their journeys, and we’d love to have you join us for our most impactful event to date.

Our Secret Sauce:

For us, it’s all about the people. Our Community Team works year-round to curate 1,000 of the world’s most inspiring young entrepreneurs to join us at Next Gen Summit. We offer all NGS participants a personalized experience, delivering the resources and connection they need the most. The NGS experience extends far past June; Summit participants are invited to join our growing global network of thousands of entrepreneurs, with access to education, networking, and connection.

Who We’re Looking For:

We read every application to ensure our 1,000 participants are here for the right reasons. Next Gen-ers are passionate, ambitious, talented, and believe in the power of a collaborative community. We welcome leaders at all stages of the entrepreneurial journey: from your pre-seed to your Series B, from college sophomores to serial founders, if you have the fire and focus and are searching for momentum, Next Gen Summit is the place for you.

Who we’re not looking for: those who prefer to take and not give, talk and not listen, neglect and not learn.

How Summit Passes Work:

If accepted, you’ll be invited to purchase a Next Gen Summit 2019 pass, either a General Summit or a VIP Experience with additional networking opportunities. Costs range from $249-$449, and include all three days of programming: Office Hours, open networking, the PITCH! application, multiple speaker tracks, refreshments, after parties, Themed Dinners, and more.
