NY: Thought Leader Dinner & Discussion - Alexandre Mars @ Black Barn

Join us for a special IVY Thought Leader Dinner & Discussion on How to Harness Social Impact to Redefine Business featuring CEO & Founder of Epic Foundation, Alexandre Mars. Known as the “Bill Gates of France,” Alexandre is a world-renowned serial entrepreneur and philanthropist. Over the last 15 years, he has successfully launched and sold several companies in Europe and North America: his two latest startups, Phonevalley (the world’s largest mobile agency) and ScrOOn (a social media management system) were sold to Publicis Groupe and Blackberry, respectively. In 2015, he was named one of New York City’s top 20 philanthropists under 40 by the New York Observer. In 2016, he was awarded EUROPE 1’s prestigious Trophée de l'Avenir as "Personality of the Future."

Understanding the demands of a new socially conscious generation, Alexandre created Epic Foundation as a platform for donors to engage in their charity through technology, allowing them to select, monitor, and experience their impact. Alexandre will guide us in a discussion on how the future of business is inextricably linked with philanthropy, revealing how businesses can incorporate social impact into their DNA in order to engage their employees, appeal to consumers and ultimately be more successful.

This one-of-a-kind discussion will take place in the beautiful private wine cellar of Black Barn, where we’ll enjoy a delicious three-course meal with unlimited wine and unforgettable conversation. We hope to see you there!
