The Gratitude Investor Retreat 2020 will be held in St. Regis Deer Valley in Park City, Utah from the evening of Sunday, September 13 to mid-day Wednesday, September 16, 2020.

The retreat is an invitation-only opportunity designed primarily for investors. The attendance ratio is about 2/3 investors to 1/3 ecosystem builders, comprising of entrepreneurs, government & NGO representatives, academics, and other thought leaders. From individuals less acquainted to those deeply immersed in impact, we’ve carefully curated a guest list to ensure the retreat is comprised of an investing group willing and able to build real engagement in conscious capitalism.

Yes, in fact, one of the retreat’s core aims is to connect those deploying capital with ideas and companies that merit capital. A select number of tickets are reserved specifically for ecosystem builders. If you are an ecosystem builder who is interested in showcasing an innovative initiative, pitching a company or fund, or sponsoring the retreat, please contact Stephanie Stettler, at Stephanie@gratituderailroad.com

The agenda provides planned content until 3 pm on Monday and Tuesday, before breaking for outdoor and recreational activities. Planned content is available in a range of formats from investment pitches and showcases, deep dives into topical issues, peer-directed idea sessions, talks by prominent thought leaders, and more. The official agenda will be released prior to the retreat on this website.

This event is held at a getaway destination particularly because we value the retreated nature of the convening. Rather than a drop-in conference format, GRR strives to generate a higher quality outcome through 2.5 back-to-back days of learning, collaboration, and working sessions. Therefore we ask registrants to commit to the full retreat. Should you have extenuating circumstances that prohibit you from staying for the full retreat, please talk with the organizers to see what kind of arrangements can be made to adjust your registration.

Yes, we understand that ecosystem builders are critical to achieving our mission but may need financial support to participate. In light of this, GRR has a Scholarship Fund that is available through application. The first pool of scholarship tickets is reserved for those in need of partial assistance, equivalent to 30% off the General Registration rate. For the second pool of tickets GRR has partnered with like-minded foundations to provide a very limited number of full scholarships. These are reserved primarily for select individuals of significant financial need.

Please email Stephanie@gratituderailroad.com if you’d like to be considered for one of these scholarships with a short explanation of your financial need. We will follow up with you individually if we can offer a partial or full scholarship.
