On July 20 & 21, 2017, three hundred youth leaders ages 17 to 24, from across the United States and around the world, gathered in Atlanta, Georgia at the new SunTrust Park Atlanta Braves Stadium for the first annual Disruptive Innovation Summit, presented by Usher’s New Look and General Electric! Young thought leaders explored global issues, were exposed to new concepts in design thinking and unleashed creative solutions to make the world a better place. The event focused on engaging youth to explore concepts as DISRUPTIVATORS, someone who uses their unique passion, or spark, to combined with innovative thinking, to create positive change in the world.
Over the course of the two days, students heard from a variety of disruptive innovators and were immersed in creative experiences geared toward opening their minds to groundbreaking thoughts and ideas.
