A Platform for Partnership

 Welcome to Concordia

Concordia is a platform that transforms and enhances the way global citizens approach the world’s greatest challenges. Through its programming, issue-based campaigns, and research, Concordia facilitates cross-sector collaboration to capitalize on the efficiencies of the private sector and the scale of the public sector.

The 2015 Concordia Summit

September 21st, 2015

The fifth annual Concordia Summit, our signature gathering of thought leaders and decision makers from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, will discuss collaboration and world affairs. As the UN General Assembly convenes in New York City, the 2015 Summit will assemble on September 21st at the Grand Hyatt New York. This year the Summit will continue its exclusive Office Hours sessions, focus on specific topics such as higher education, renewable energy, and American infrastructure, and introduce Concordia Campaigns.

What is the Summit?


Our Summits have hosted 25 former and current heads of state, more than 250 top CEOs, and over 1500 participants. A platform for the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, Concordia facilitates partnership on a global scale.



The purpose of Concordia’s research division is to better understand what makes a public-private collaboration successful. It strives to identify best practices that can subsequently be applied to new partnerships.



A Concordia Campaign is a topic-driven initiative where we narrow our programmatic, research, and networking efforts. By establishing a private sector, a public sector, a nonprofit and an academic partner, each campaign employs the Concordia platform to drive focus and attention around a particular issue.
