“I am very happy to welcome Carlos Slim, a man who as a great businessman, pioneer, philanthropist and global citizen, inspires so many around the world,” said Richard Attias, the founder of the New York Forum.
The first annual New York Forum will bring together hundreds of international business leaders, entrepreneurs, sovereign fund managers, regulatory officials and academics for a series of results-oriented discussions, debates and dialogues, with a mission that is both bold and urgent: to reinvent business models, to stimulate job creation and restore faith in the international economy. At The New York Forum, high-profile CEOs, investors, and policy makers will lead plenary sessions, and participants will participate in smaller targeted task forces, led by the Boston Consulting Group. In a post-crisis world, The New York Forum recognizes the necessity to bring key leaders together in a collaborative environment to brainstorm viable solutions and identify opportunities to effect change across disciplines.
Strategic partners of The New York Forum include The New York Times, The Partnership for New York City and The Boston Consulting Group. Columbia University’s Center on Capitalism and Society, under the direction of Nobel Prize Winning Professor Edmund Phelps, is partnering on parts of the program content.
