Submit Calendar Event.

NextBillion’s calendar features conferences, presentations, webinars, workshops and other events relevant to impact-focused business and global development, particularly in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs).


While our staff sources most of these items ourselves, we also welcome readers to submit relevant events for possible publication. We assess these submissions daily, and publish or excerpt those that best enhance our coverage.

A few requirements:

  1. Events should be submitted at least 1 week ahead of time, if possible, to give our staff time to post and promote them.
  2. We accept submissions of both in-person and virtual events, which may be either free or paid.
  3. We don’t post training courses, accelerators, pitch competitions/challenges or other career/business development opportunities on our calendar. You can submit those opportunities to our BizDev page.
  4. We do not edit or proofread submitted items, and all submissions must be in English.

To submit a calendar event for consideration, please fill out the form below. If you have trouble submitting your item, or if you need to edit or withdraw it after submission, email us at

  • Note: Your name and email will not be included in the posting, they are only used in case we need to contact you.
