SwitchPoint is a conference about creativity, partnership, and action. It’s where humanitarian innovation, global health, and technology collide.

Our inspiring speakers (over 50 from all over the world!) are building medical devices out of broken toys, using drones and 3D printers to save lives, creating innovation hubs, crowdsourcing crisis response, driving policy, shaping investment, and mapping everything. These are the people we admire, often working in challenging areas with limited resources and making incredible things happen.

Come to SwitchPoint and find your people. Networking is not a big enough word—we like to think of it as alchemy. The drive and ingenuity of the SwitchPoint community will encourage you to make your big idea a reality—no matter what.

SwitchPoint is produced each year by IntraHealth International, a global health organization that understands the power of creative people and partnerships and the fast-growing interconnectivity of global development.

SwitchPoint features:

30+ powerful stage talks
20+ hands-on microlabs
interactive networking
mentoring sessions
field trips
great food
live performances.
It’s all accomplished in a retreat setting at the Haw River Ballroom down by the riverside in historic Saxapahaw, North Carolina. Come get away from it all, and get into it all!
