On June 8th, The Financial Times and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, will host a major gathering of thought leaders in London ahead of the annual dinner honouring the winners of the FT/IFC Transformational Business Awards. In line with the focus of the 2017 Awards, this year’s conference will focus on the ground-breaking use of new technologies in the delivery of infrastructure in the developing world, the impact on renewable energy, and the leadership role that cities are taking in global efforts to address climate change.

Chaired by senior FT journalists, the conference will also delve deeper into the role the private sector can play in helping to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in particular the targets around health and education, and the steps that need to be taken to assure financing at scale. Top innovators, investors, business leaders and policy-makers will share their insights on these issues with a view to formulating specific action steps. This event will lead up to the announcement of the winners of the Transformational Business Awards dinner selected from the pool of nearly 150 submissions from global innovators whose capital, technology and ideas are moving the needle to make a difference.
