With its events, the institute seeks to serve as a platform for critical debate and thought leadership on current world topics, attracting world-renowned and top-class guest speakers from the fields of politics, business, academia, and culture.

Previous participants have founded more than 550 companies and created over 4,500 jobs.


In partnership with Ashoka, McKinsey supports Bookbridge in building new learning centers to bring quality education to people in need.

This nonprofit organization collaborates with patient groups and stakeholders to identify pharmacotherapies to alleviate rare diseases. Its approach is centered on patient engagement, with the goal of providing universal access to these new medicines. We helped EspeRare develop a business model, innovative value proposition, growth priorities, and methodology to assess its impact on public health.
