Altru Institute’s mission is to address large complex challenges by fostering collaboration among those with the will and capacity to make an impact. Our goal is to identify and assemble the bold innovators and financiers and empower these changemakers to tackle the world’s greatest challenges.

Our annual meeting brings thought leaders and change-makers to the Altru Clubhouse to learn about the groundbreaking approaches and innovative solutions to key issues. Our simple idea is that by improving communication among those with similar objectives, we can foster collaboration and inspire change. We focus on identifying the world's most capable and providing a platform for their best ideas and solutions. We bring this group together in Davos.  This summit, concurrent with the World Economic Forum, will help us reach those who can make a difference.


Altru offers its members a highly curated experience to participate in the global gathering of thought leaders. This week, concurrent the World Economic Forum, is expected to draw 11,000 participants and stakeholders to Davos, with dozens of events scheduled each day.


The Clubhouse provides members and guests with the ideal operating base for private meetings, receptions, and programming. Altru schedules programming, presentations, and industry-specific meetups for members to engage the most compelling ideas.

We scan the globe to identify original approaches to major challenges. In addition to the Virus and Climate Project Altru will provide a platform for its affiliates and members to address other key challenges.  Examples from 2020. 

Sustainability and the Circular Economy 

Sustainability permeates all aspects of the human experience and serves as the gateway to our future. The Altru Sustainability and Circular Economies Initiative focuses on the fashion textile industries and plastics in the Oceans.

Energy and Climate

Climate change, driven primarily by CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, is a clear threat to all life. The Altru Energy & Climate Initiative focuses on future technologies and new ways to source and store clean energy.

Health and Longevity

We will be looking at how advances in technology are changing the outlook for global health & longevity. We are forming communities to address on Opioid Addiction, Mental Health, PTSD and Cancer.



Altru offers a platform for new projects, technologies, and strategies that address challenges. Through sessions, presentations, and receptions hosted in our Clubhouse, Altru will share these ideas with fellow changemakers. In leveraging our private screening room and event space as innovation platforms, we can foster new networks and relationships built on one-on-one conversation, trust, and personal engagement.  

Each showcased project will receive editorial coverage, a dedicated landing page with an executive summary, and global dissemination via social media platforms. The objective is to reach a year-round global audience of impact investors.  

For our Davos delegation, we seek those with philanthropic and altruistic orientations who believe in the power of creative collaboration to address complex challenges. We ask that those interested join us for an interview to discuss passions, goals, and projects of interest, so that we may better build individualized programming suited to each participant.
