About TWIN

The World Innovation Network (TWIN) is a global connective of innovators who power a serendipity engine to manifest purpose and impact.

Founded in 2003, TWIN includes nearly 3,000 participants from over 30 countries representing business, government, non-profits, the arts, academia and defense. Our TWIN members—known as TWINians—gather annually for our summit, TWIN Global, and engage online and in-person throughout the year.

In 2021, our convening will take place in person and online as TWIN Global 2021: Beyond.

TWIN is a “network of networks” connecting our TWIN Sibling organizations with whom we closely partner year-round.
