Early Futures: Shining a Light on Early Childhood Innovation

Last month, GCI traveled to San Jose for the Early Futures conference, a first-of-its-kind gathering hosted by Omidyar Network, Sesame Workshop and Promise Venture Studio that brought together nonprofit and for-profit ventures, investors, experts, foundations and early childhood leaders to explore how innovation can help children succeed by providing a strong foundation early in life.

Over the course of two days, the GCI team built new relationships, strengthened existing ones and imagined the possibilities for young children together. Steffanie Clothier, investment director, gathered the most powerful takeaways in a Shared Knowledge post.
