Entrepreneur Sir Tom Hunter's The Hunter Foundation has committed three years of financial support to Impact Summit, the latest project from Leith-based start up Future X. The start up focuses on inspiring others to build a better world through business. 

The first Impact Summit will be on Wednesday 9 May, in the Barras in Glasgow. Speakers include Glaswegian author, artist and columnist Darren McGarvey aka Loki, alongside more than 300 entrepeneurs, civil servants and representatives from community groups, business and education are expected to attend. 

Three venues in Glasgow's Barras have been chosen for the summit as both modern and historical focal points of creativity, culture, commerce and celebration. The FutureX team plan to hold an Impact Summit every year, inviting innovators from Scotland and around the world to form new partnerships that inspire action for meaningful change and contribute to a global economy that lifts everyone. 

More information about this event will be updated as it is released.
