Kairos brings together top students from around the world in an effort to foster the next generation of leaders to develop globally impactful innovations. Kairos Fellows work alongside one another and with the guidance of the foremost leaders in various industries to address the most pressing conflicts of our times by means of entrepreneurship, diplomacy, and innovation. Kairos Fellows have already made strides toward finding meaningful and practical solutions regarding alternative energy, education, and healthcare. On a most fundamental level, all Kairos Fellows believe that through the sharing of ideas and collaboration with their peers they will be able to turn their visions into solutions. Fellows also hold the common belief that they will ultimately Do Well by Doing Good; this is to say that they believe in becoming financially successful in the pursuit of improving the quality of life on a large scale. Ultimately, Kairos exists to foster and connect young people as they pursue their entrepreneurial goals and to spark initiatives that create global, lasting, and game-changing impact through cooperation, collaboration, and action.
