International Strategy Forum
International Strategy Forum aims to forge an interdisciplinary network of rising leaders to strengthen progress and security amid technological innovation and a changing world order.
International Strategy Forum bets early on the next generation of problem solvers with extraordinary potential in geopolitics, innovation, and public leadership. International Strategy Forum seeks out non-traditional talent across boardrooms, newsrooms, laboratories, policy-making councils, foundations, and beyond. International Strategy Forum then knits that talent together into a lifelong community, pairing fellows with mentors and providing them with a framework to better analyze and tackle hard strategic problems in global affairs.
In addition to our North American cohorts, we are proud to announce the 2022 launch of our programs in Asia and Europe. In collaboration with the policy think tank and graduate school the S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, we will hold the inaugural ISF-Asia convening in Singapore in April. In June, we will hold the inaugural ISF-Europe convening in collaboration with the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) at the Salzburg Global Seminar. Collectively these programs will bring together emerging leaders from 34 different countries to tackle complex problems at the intersection of technology and geopolitics.

Building networks of talent
We are working to create the best, largest, and most persistent network of exceptional people ready to make the world better together. Too many brilliant people with breakthrough ideas are never found, recognized, or given a voice. We aim to change that.
