Davos 2020








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.

The 2020 Summit 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 50th Anniversary of the World Economic Forum, will help us reach those who can make a difference.



An enriching educational and social experience focused on understanding global challenges.


Altru offers its members a highly curated experience to participate in the global gathering of thought leaders. This week, concurrent with the 50th Anniversary of 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. We have identified four key areas of focus which will shape this year's Annual Summit: 

Sustainability and the Circular Economy

Exploring how sustainability can reshape the economy and connect philanthropic endeavors worldwide. Reimagining new circular supply chains for the fashion industry. 

Artificial Intelligence’s

Impact on Society

Addressing the impact of AI, robots and the future of work. 

Energy and Climate

Finding new ways to generate and store energy. Reducing carbon in the atmosphere. Cleaning the world's oceans and removing plastics. 

    Health and Wellness

Understanding technology's impact on global health concerns, specifically regarding cancer, addiction, and mental health. 

In addition to programming organized at the Clubhouse, Altru offers a concierge service to draw together the best events across Davos. We develop a schedule of connections for each Altru attendee that will ignite their interests, empower their initiatives, and link them with others in their field. Our highly curated approach ensures that each attendee makes the most out of their Davos experience, and comes away with the resources needed to build, scale, and fortify their ventures.

Altru Winter Summit in Davos 2019


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. Some of these projects include: 

  • Advancing Women in Developing Countries

  • Immigration and the Refugee Crisis


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.
