The contributions from our Circle of Benefactors enable us to bring the 200 Leaders of Tomorrow to St. Gallen each year, covering travel expenses. Beyond that, they finance the technical organisation of the event and enable us to stay in touch with our global network and deliver world-class services to participants.
The leading companies in the world.
We foster close relationships with a wide range of renowned organisations and companies which support us financially, materially and in advisory roles. As we don’t receive any government funding, we are bolstered by our Circle of Benefactors, our Patrons, our Donators and the University of St. Gallen.
The Circle of Benefactors is a selected group of companies that forms the financial backbone of the St. Gallen Symposium. Our Main Partners, ABB, Accenture, BMW, Credit Suisse, HP, Microsoft, Salt, Swiss Re, UBS, Xerox and ZF Friedrichshafen, are joined by around 350 further partners. Apart from our Circle of Benefactors, our Patrons enable the empowerment of the next Generation with their contributions. Hundreds of Donators enable us to create a world-class event with their contributions. Our alma mater, the University of St. Gallen, allows us to host the St. Gallen Symposium on their premises each year. All these partnerships are key elements in the ongoing success of our initiative. We are both proud and very thankful to cooperate with such a vast number of outstanding partners.
