A project of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community is the largest global network of entrepreneurs, young professionals, and innovators. The network’s purpose is to connect the global network of young professionals with the global community of entrepreneurs. The network was founded by the World Economic Forum and Swiss Re in January 2016, with the first annual Global Shaper Summit taking place in Davos, Switzerland. Over the summer of 2016, the World Economic Forum announced that it would be partnering with the Global Shapers Community to create the World Economic Forum Young Entrepreneur Council, which completed its first meeting in October 2016.
