The Leadership Council and Co-founders of Concordia, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting public-private partnerships, announced the fourth annual Concordia Summit to be held on September 29-30, 2014 in New York.
The programming will be focused on Concordia’s 2014 theme, Scaling Proven Solutions Through Collaboration, promising to explore ways public, private, and nonprofit stakeholders can collaborate to expand the scale and impact of existing solutions for positive social change. Whether it is developing dynamic cities, enhancing our younger generation’s outlook, or addressing pressing infrastructure needs, Scaling Proven Solutions Through Collaboration will encourage individuals, organizations and different levels of government to unite in order to leverage their abilities for a better future.
Concordia was founded by Nicholas M. Logothetis and Matthew Swift, two high-school friends who now lead the non-profit organization.
“The Concordia Summit is unlike any other event of its kind,” said Logothetis, who also sits on Libra Group’s board of Directors.
“Developing lasting solutions through public-private partnerships is Concordia’s purpose and my personal mission,” he added. “We have more in store for 2014 and look forward to further developing our research platform and our series of convenings.”
The event will take place in New York City on September 29th and 30th. Building off the success of three previous summits, the 2014 Summit will convene to discuss the role of public-private partnerships and their potential to create sustainable solutions.
Over the years, the Concordia Summit has brought together over 20 heads of state as well as hundreds of business, nonprofit and government leaders. Partnerships form to effect positive social impact, transforming a reactionary global approach to one that is proactive.
“Each Concordia Summit has been better than the last and we plan to continue the trend into 2014,” said Concordia Co-founder and Chairman Matthew A. Swift. “We have momentum with our partners in the public and private sectors that we will sustain and build to best tackle pressing global problems.”
