Steve Aoki named Social Innovation Summit headlining speaker

Flagship event in Los Angeles takes place this June

Social Innovation Summit (SIS) announces Steve Aoki as a headlining speaker who will join its flagship summit on June 6-7 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, coinciding with LA Tech Week. The two-day, purpose-driven gathering hosted by Landmark Ventures will convene corporate leaders, funders, government and nonprofit leaders and celebrities from innovative organizations to engage in thoughtful discussions on critical issues.

Aoki will be on this year’s main stage in conversation with Rembrandt Flores, the founder of 8Commas and co-founder of Flowing Ventures. Aoki’s A0K1VERSE ecosystem is at the forefront of the metaverse and Web3 space and will be a focus of their engaging discussion.

“Given all of the changes and disruption, the one constant is the need for partnerships,” states Zeev Klein, founder and curator of Social Innovation Summit and general partner at Landmark Ventures. “Social Innovation Summit acts as a catalyst in bringing together thinkers and doers across industries, sectors and positions of influence to increase impact in our communities and propel innovation for good.”

Social Innovation Summit speakers will present on a variety of timely topics spanning the future of work, education, health and wellness, technology for good, corporate leadership, economic empowerment, social justice, philanthropy, environmental issues, sustainability, and more.

As part of Social Innovation Summit’s mission to elevate groundbreaking ideas and shine a spotlight on the most innovative leaders addressing the most urgent social issues, a select group of community members will be honored through the SIS Innovator of the Year Awards.

Operating at the nexus of technology, philanthropy and business, Social Innovation Summit brings together the brightest minds – across industries, sectors and generations – to catalyze inspired partnerships that are disrupting social impact. Social Innovation Summit works diligently to curate and convene a social good community that is an influential and action-oriented agent for impact, and a unique platform in which the norm is challenged, the new is embraced and the unexpected is celebrated. The event will include main stage programming, interactive breakout sessions and VIP opportunities.
