The Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship is widely touted as “the premier international platform for advancing entrepreneurial approaches and solutions to the world’s most pressing problems”. Held annually, at Oxford, in the UK, it draws nearly 1,000 of the world’s most influential social entrepreneurs from around the globe. Key visionaries, activists, thinkers and doers gather at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School to exchange ideas, solutions and information.
The Forum seeks to scale-up the impact that the world’s leading social entrepreneurs can have, by uniting them and bringing in strategic partners, for a pool of learning and leverage for large-scale social change. The event is co-produced by the Skoll Foundation and the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship.
Martín von Hildebrand received the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship in 2009, for the innovative and visionary work being carried out by Gaia Amazonas. This year he is invited back as a speaker at this world-renowned event, which shines a spotlight on best practices, new innovations, and connects leaders to one another.
