Concordia is a global convener of heads of state, government officials, C-suite executives, and leaders of nonprofits, think tanks, and foundations to find cross-sector solutions that address the biggest challenges of our time. The Concordia Annual Summit is the largest and most inclusive nonpartisan forum alongside the UN General Assembly, while Concordia also hosts regional summits with a focus on the Americas, United States, Europe, and Africa. Concordia is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership organization founded in 2011 by Matthew A. Swift and Nicholas M. Logothetis.
Concordia is a member-based organization dedicated to actively fostering, elevating, and sustaining cross-sector partnerships for social impact.
Concordia aims to create a global community where challenges are solved collaboratively and inclusively.
Produce powerful and inclusive convenings that elevate voices and perspectives from across all sectors and levels to advance critical conversations around globally-impacting issues.
Utilize expertise and insight into partnering best practices around a diverse range of issue areas to effectively connect, position, and fuel relationships between individuals and organizations to create a unique community of unlikely partners.
Nurture, enhance, and build long-term partnership models that transform conversations into action and achieve positive social impact.
In the summer of 2011, friends and business partners Nick Logothetis and Matthew Swift had an idea for convening thought leaders in the midst of the 10th anniversary of 9/11 to discuss the importance of partnerships in combating extremism. Since then, Concordia has grown towards a belief that P3s are a fundamental tool to addressing many societal challenges. Concordia recognizes that cross-sector collaboration offers effective solutions.
