Imagine a gathering where hard-to-reach family offices, some of the world’s leading fund managers, chief executives of impact companies, economists, Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, civil society leaders, academics, scientists, best-selling authors and artists meet to share their ideas, insights and outlook in a collaborative and safe environment.
Much like the elegant dinners hosted by founding father and writer of the Declaration of Independence, President Thomas Jefferson at his Monticello estate, ICV connects intriguing individuals from different disciplines and those with common interests who, by virtue and wealth, can advance corporate responsibility, capitalize businesses at significant levels, improve the wellbeing of humankind and influence systemic change in the world.
At our Jeffersonian Dinners, guests share and debate ideas through tablewide, stimulating discussions on a wide range of topics, without pitching and solicitation. Our goal is to empower like-minded leaders from different spheres of influence to apply their resources and talents to finding solutions to the world’s greatest challenges.
