About
Summit

Through a series of invitation-only events, Summit fosters a global community of entrepreneurs, academics, athletes, artists, astronauts, authors, chefs, engineers, explorers, philanthropists, spiritual leaders, scientists, and beyond.

Our 8 principles

We believe shared principles are the foundation for building an authentic community.

1

Be your most hospitable self.

Be extremely welcoming, go out of your way to intro someone new to your friends, and take extra good care of each other.

2

Embrace the unexpected.

Unpredictable moments can be the most meaningful.

3

Don’t take yourself too seriously.

Have flexible expectations and explore new ways of perceiving yourself and others.

4

Build friendships.

Summit isn’t about resumés. It’s about building lifelong relationships. Take the time to truly know those around you. Elevate the conversation, respect yourself and others.

5

Show love.

Don’t snub the start-ups and don’t fanboy the big timers.

6

Go on a learning safari.

Everyone has something to learn and something to teach. Take an intellectual, spiritual, and creative journey.

7

Be present.

Disconnect to connect.

8

Play.

While searching for value at Summit, also enjoy it just for the fun of it.
