Forbes 2019 Under 30 Global Summit

About The Event

This spring, Forbes is convening the Under 30 Global Women’s Summit, an international gathering of top young founders, leaders, and mentors for four days of learning, connecting and creating. It’s Forbes' first-ever Under 30 event dedicated to women with four unforgettable days of world-class content (their summits have featured speakers like Jessica Alba, Sara Blakely, Karlie Kloss, Jennifer Hyman, Chrissy Teigen, and Nobel prize-winner Malala Yousafzai), VIP experiences across Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and workshops focused on propelling women-led businesses. Join a global group of luminaries across business, art, politics, and philanthropy coming together to shape, and shake, the future.

In partnership with Ellevate, Forbes is offering Innovator and Executive Council members the listed "Under 30" ticket price of $200, instead of the General Attendee price of $995.

Full Agenda

Sunday, March 31:

  • Registration Opens at the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE)

    Location: Tel Aviv Stock Exchange

  • Opening Bell Ceremony at TASE

    Ever rung the opening bell of a major stock exchange? The women of 30 Under 30 will do just that in the spectacular setting of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. We’ll spend the rest of the morning with more inspiration: hearing stories of remarkable women overcoming adversity to solve tough problems in their fields.

  • Registration & Welcome Party: The Taste of Israel Food Festival

    Location: Gordo on the Beach

    From our private beach pavilion, we’ve brought together the legends of Tel Aviv street food – from Dabush’s schwarma to the Abulafia bakery, washed down by the region’s best cocktails, beers and wines. Prepare to eat, drink, dance, as we watch the sun set over the Mediterranean.

Monday, April 1

    Location: Peres Center for Peace

  • -


    Location: Peres Center for Peace

    We’ll spend the afternoon hearing from some incredible entrepreneurs, mentors and leaders.

  • Private Dinner & Conversations *By Invitation Only

    The evening will be spent doing—at the best restaurants in Tel Aviv. During these dinners of purpose, curated groups will be given specific issues (from refugees to education access) and specific goals—each with a social entrepreneur in the center. The goal: to establish entrepreneurial, purpose-driven networks that will far outlast this conference.

  • The Ultimate Tel Aviv Afterparty

    Let’s all come together. We’re taking over the most exclusive club in Tel Aviv, for an afterparty, with one of Tel Aviv’s top DJs.

Tuesday, April 2

  • Morning: Wellness

    Tel Aviv is a fitness capital, and we’ll spend the morning exploring and exercising with a host of world-class athletes. Prepare to see the city in a unique way, followed by a group brunch.

  • Afternoon: Culture

    Group will travel by bus to Jerusalem
    In just 30 minutes, we’ll travel together via bus to Jerusalem, one of the world’s most historic and holy cities, for the ultimate bucket list item: a VIP guided tour of the Old City including all the treasures, even those rarely seen.

  • VIP Guided Tours of the Old City

    Tours will leave every 15 minutes from Visitors Center outside Tower of David

  • Evening: Retreat

    This is arguably the most amazing cohort of young women leaders ever assembled. With this much talent, we’ll have an incredible night of dinner, drinks and music.

Wednesday, April 3

  • Action

    Location: JVP

    The number one issue with women-based startups: lack of access to capital. Israel is the number one country, per capita, for startups and VCs. So we’re taking over the campus of the largest venture capital firm in Israel, JVP, for our initial “Founders and Funders” event. The daylong program is focused on getting more capital into more woman-led companies and organizations, with the goal of establishing a new set of standards that we can share with the world.

  • Night: Art, Fashion & the Party of a Lifetime

    Location: Jerusalem Shuk

    We transform the historic Jerusalem shuk, an open-air market by day, into the world’s ultimate party. Each food stall morphs into a private bar or nightclub. Each shutter turns into an art installation—and the market rows become the scene of an audacious fashion show, with the best Under 30 designers. All followed by a dance party that will last till dawn. Sound too good to be true? It’s better.

Thursday, April 4
