Third Annual Digital Empowers Summit

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 to Thursday, October 8, 2020

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has and will forever reshape our world—from the way companies do business and engage their value chains, to the way governments and nonprofits reach and empower communities. 

Cross-sector collaboration, leadership, and investment in tech-driven solutions and diverse perspectives are needed now more than ever to accelerate innovation and bring about greater equality of opportunity for all.

On October 7-8, Digital Empowers, a program led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Tata Consultancy Services, will harness that global momentum by providing a platform for collective action and social innovation.

We invite you to join our tech-for-good movement at the third annual Digital Empowers Summit.

The 2020 Summit will convene leading business and community leaders, technologists and changemakers to set the tech-for-good agenda for the ‘next normal’ and discuss strategies for further cooperation and coordination to bring about positive impact through digital transformation. Topics to be addressed include:

  • Open Innovation and Data
  • Inclusive Innovation Ecosystems
  • Civic Tech and Digital Civility
  • Technology Adoption and Transformation

Throughout the virtual event, attendees will have exclusive opportunities to engage with speakers, network with peers, hold brainstorms, product demos, and innovation deep-dives though access to private and group virtual meeting space.

Stay Tuned! The third annual Digital Empowers Summit agenda will be released soon within the coming weeks. To gain better perspective into the caliber of this event, visit the 2019 and 2018 Summit programs.

The Summit will culminate with Digital Empowers’ Pitch for Purpose competition, a new pitch competition for social entrepreneurs organized by the U.S. Chamber Foundation and Tata Consultancy Services, in collaboration with SEED SPOT. Six leading founders will compete for the chance to win a $15,000 first place cash prize. Register here to watch.
