the Newport Global Summit
The Newport Global Summit is an exclusive invitation only leadership retreat held in historic Newport, Rhode Island at the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy since 2009. The purpose of the Summit is to encourage active collaboration among leaders of the global economy in order to share knowledge and build bridges for cooperation through business opportunity and common purpose.
The Summit is designed to encourage meaningful interaction among family businesses and international business leaders. Family owned or controlled enterprises are at the vertex of the global economy, accounting for approximately two-thirds of the businesses around the world, and 70-90% of global GDP globally.
Entrepreneurship, investment and global trade are historic drivers of economic growth. Newport, known for its Gilded Age mansions on the shores of the Atlantic, reflects centuries of international trade, waves of renaissance and an entrepreneurial spirit. In this natural setting, we are inspired to explore new potential for economic prosperity.
The Summit’s host, 7Sisters LLC, is committed to fostering new economic alliances in a global economy, as well as strategic and collaborative partnerships, through investment and international trade.
