42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton, renowned attorney and philanthropist William Gates, Sr., and DuPont CEO Ellen Kulman all have something extremely prestigious in common. No, they are not the three individuals whose portraits hang on my bedroom wall aside those of NFL placekicking legend Lou “The Toe” Groza and 16-time World Heavyweight Champion, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair. And no, they did not all have cameo roles in “A Few Good Men” alongside Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and Kevin Bacon. But the one thing they do share is their membership in one of the most distinguished, recognizable organizations in the world, The Kairos Society. Thanks to the fine work we do here at The Campus Socialite, we have been granted access to the Second Annual Kairos Global Summit this coming Friday (4/16) and Saturday (4/17) to see just how the brightest young minds of our generation are striving to brighten the future of both the US and global community on a social and economic scale. Please read on to find out what to expect from this weekend’s festivities and how your peers are paving the way for a brighter tomorrow.
Founded by 20-year-old Wharton student, Ankur Jain, The Kairos Society unites around a simple message of “doing well by doing good.” Kairos is a non-profit organization led and managed by students in an effort to promote global entrepreneurism and economic ingenuity among today’s scholars. Their mission is carried out by bringing together the brightest young minds from colleges and acclaimed entrepreneurial firms around the world.

On April 16 and 17, the New York Stock Exchange and Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will host the Second Annual Kairos Global Summit and the focus will be placed squarely upon fostering social and economic growth within our own borders and abroad. Showcasing the top 100 collegiate companies in areas such as green tech, alternative energy, health and sciences, and philanthropy, the Summit promises to bond some of the most intelligent minds of our time.
