The Dream Bigger Summit was launched in South Africa in 2023 to open the minds of entrepreneurs and give them permission to think beyond traditional strategies and consider the possibilities beyond South Africa's borders.

We have established a vision for change since launching the summit discussing large-scale goals and possible changes. To make the summit most effective the content is geared towards relevant topics that impact the people of South Africa and the business landscape.

Furthermore, at our summit, we encourage more than just presentations in a lecture-style format. We use unconventional sessions to hash out new initiatives and generate new ideas.

We have partnered with the Department of Women, Youth, and Persons with Disabilities, the Sustainable Development Solutions Network South Africa, and various other organizations to elevate the summit and invite speakers who are currently standing at the pinnacle of their respective fields.

The Dream Bigger Business Summit also offers the opportunity for companies to exhibit at the Business Summit Expo.

The topics covered in the programme is in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere.
Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Goal 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
Goal 8: Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all.
Goal 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development. (This goal overarches all others)

The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2023: Special Edition provides a powerful call to action, presenting a candid assessment of the SDGs based on the latest data and estimates. While highlighting the existing gaps and urging the world to redouble its efforts, the report also emphasizes the immense potential for success through strong political will and the utilization of available technologies, resources, and knowledge. Together, the global community can reignite progress towards achieving the SDGs and create a brighter future for all.

According to the report, the impacts of the climate crisis, the war in Ukraine, a weak global economy, and the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have revealed weaknesses and hindered progress towards the Goals. The report further warns that while lack of progress is universal, it is the world’s poorest and most vulnerable who are experiencing the worst effects of these unprecedented global challenges. It also points out areas that need urgent action to rescue the SDGs and deliver meaningful progress for people and the planet by 2030.

“Unless we act now, the 2030 Agenda will become an epitaph for a world that might have been.”
António Guterres
Secretary-General, United Nations
