Why we created ASU+GSV Summit

GSV Takes On Society’s Greatest Challenge:

Our mission is to create a world in which ALL people have equal access to the future and we believe that scaled innovations in the delivery of education and workforce skills are critical to achieving that end.

The ASU+GSV Summit, co-founded by Michael Moe and Deborah Quazzo, began in 2010 with a collaboration between Global Silicon Valley (GSV) and Arizona State University (ASU). Our north star is that ALL people have equal access to the future, and we believe that innovations at scale in "Pre-K to Gray" learning and skills are critical to achieving that end.
