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. Now celebrating its 15 years, ASU+GSV has become the world's most important and impactful gathering of leaders across "Pre-K to Gray" education and workforce learning with our flagship event held in San Diego welcoming over 16,000 yearly attendees in person and virtually, the second annual ASU+GSV & Emeritus Summit in India, and the inaugural ASU+GSV AIR Show illuminating the transformative future of AI and learning. Across all of our global event, the magic is in the mix with investors, entrepreneurs, educators, and innovators who would otherwise never be in the same room together, but all of whom shared a passion for driving education and innovation.
