Milken Institute

The Milken Institute turns ideas into real-world initiatives that address some of society's greatest challenges: widening access to capital, creating jobs and improving health. They are a non-profit, nonpartisan think tank determined to increase global prosperity by advancing collaborative solutions that widen access to capital, create jobs and improve health. We do this through independent, data-driven research, action-oriented meetings and meaningful policy initiatives. Their work is guided by the formula that their founder and chairman, Michael Milken, developed: Prosperity equals the effect of financial technology acting to multiply the value of human capital, social capital and real assets. Stable economic growth most often occurs where people have access to education and health care, can participate freely in the political process, and can aspire to property ownership. The formula is their understanding of the relationship between finance and a strong society. Their Centers explore the convergence of finance, business, health, philanthropy and policy to advance collaborative solutions that will drive progress. Each center is uniquely poised to steer the policy toward practical solutions and sound decision making. Milken Institute research is objective and nonpartisan. Their ambitious research agenda tackles the issues that matter in a complex and interconnected global economy. They publish reports that inform policy and their interactive sites make data come to life. From their flagship event, the Global Conference, to roundtables and workshops to Capitol Hill briefings, they bring together leaders with diverse expertise from across sectors and industries for highly focused interactions and compelling content.
