About Us

Meeting of the Minds is a global knowledge sharing platform based in San Francisco, CA.

We focus on the innovators and initiatives at the bleeding edge of urban sustainability and connected technology. Through our blog, webinars, meetups, roundtables and an annual summit held each fall, we invite 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 sector-to-sector. Among the hundreds of international leaders who participate in the Meeting of the Minds network are innovators scaling-up practical urban solutions in infrastructure, policy, design, equity, technology, energy, mobility, water, and finance.

Now in its 8th year, our annual summit brings together 350+ opinion-shapers, policy-makers, leading thinkers and innovators from all over the world for 2+ days of intensive immersion in thought leadership and industry development.
