Meeting of the Minds is a global leadership network and knowledge sharing platform based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since it was founded, Meeting of the Minds has been dedicated to a singular proposition: bring together a carefully chosen set of key urban sustainability and technology stakeholders and gather them around a common platform in ways that help build lasting alliances. We believe that such a platform is a vital ingredient for smart, sustainable and equitable urban (re)development strategies.

Meeting of the Minds focuses on the innovators and initiatives at the bleeding edge of urban sustainability and connected technology. Through our blog, magazine, monthly webinars, monthly meetups, workshops, roundtables, and annual summit held each fall, we invite international thought leaders from the public, private, non-profit, academic and philanthropic sectors to identify innovations that can be scaled, replicated and transferred from city-to-city and across sectors.

Among the thousands of international leaders who participate in the Meeting of the Minds digital and in-person events are innovators scaling-up practical urban solutions in infrastructure, policy, design, equity, technology, energy, mobility, water, finance, and more.

Now in its 11th year, our annual fall summit brings together 400+ opinion-shapers, policy-makers, leading thinkers and innovators from 20+ countries for 2+ days of intensive immersion in thought leadership and cross-sector partnership building.

Meeting of the Minds is made possible by the generous support of these organizations:
