The SCALE Global Summit serves as the premier gathering for the investment and entrepreneurial ecosystem. This event attracts world-class investors, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders from various sectors, including finance, media and technology, politics, and philanthropy. By convening these diverse perspectives, SCALE provides a platform for collaboration and the exchange of ideas that can drive meaningful change.

The Family Office Roundtable was organized as part of the Family Office for Sustainable Development Initiative (FOSD), a collaborative effort between PVBLIC Foundation and the UN Office for Partnerships. FOSD brings together small groups of influential Family Offices with a shared vision for sustainable development. By engaging these key players, FOSD aims to unlock the immense potential of private wealth and resources in addressing pressing global challenges.

The discussions at the roundtable delved into crucial topics that are vital for the advancement of sustainable development. Participants explored innovative investment approaches that integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations. They also examined the role of the next generation of Family Offices in driving impact and leaving a meaningful legacy.

Moreover, the roundtable highlighted the persistent gender inequalities in philanthropy and impact investment. Recognizing the importance of empowering women as change agents, the discussions aimed to identify strategies for bridging the gender gap in the field. By addressing this critical issue, PVBLIC Foundation and its partners demonstrated their commitment to creating a more inclusive and equitable society.
