Four years ago, the BMW Foundation invited Taproot founder Aaron Hurst to participate in its Transatlantic Forum for Young Leaders. From that invitation, a deep friendship and partnership formed between Aaron and BMW Foundation CEO Markus Hipp. Aaron understood BMW Foundation’s mission to inspire executives and engage them in service to work for the common good and for a society that is capable of meeting the challenges of the future by engaging in cross-sector collaborations with partners across the globe. Markus saw Taproot and pro bono as a means to achieve that mission – and the Global Pro Bono Summit was born.

Now in its second year, Taproot and BMW Foundation staff have been working side-by-side, in the true spirit of partnership, to plan and execute the 2014 Global Pro Bono Summit in San Francisco, a week-long series of events designed to facilitate dynamic peer discussions among pro bono leaders from around the globe, from Saudi Arabia to South Korea, and across sectors and industries.
