"Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks." — Johann Gottfried von Herder
Our vision is to build the world's most impactful community across 50 global cities, and unite everyone who is passionate about creating a better world.
IVY is the world's first Social University, created to unite thoughtful individuals through a lifetime of new inspiration and connections. Our curriculum is focused on Arts, Entrepreneurship, Policy, Well-being, and Social Impact. Every month, IVY members are invited to a wide variety of IVY Gatherings that include salon discussions with distinguished thought-leaders, art nights, cocktail and dinner parties, film screenings, theater and symphony performances, fitness and wellness activities, and getaways. IVY.com provides a dedicated portal for our members to engage with our community, and IVY Magazine showcases the most compelling stories from our members and thought-leaders.
All prospective members are interviewed one-on-one prior to joining, and they commit to supporting each other's endeavors to the best of their abilities. Everything we do is highly social, intellectually stimulating, culturally enriching, and professionally rewarding. Our mission is to spark unprecedented human unity, progress, and fulfillment.Register for Membership
