Singularity University Establishes Local Chapter in Argentina

SingularityU Cordoba to Explore and Foster the Use of Exponential Technologies for Good with Local Businesses, Innovators, and Entrepreneurs

CORDOBA, ARGENTINA  – July 26, 2017 – Singularity University (SU), a global community with a mission to educate, inspire, and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to help solve humanity's grand challenges, has established a new Chapter in Cordoba, Argentina, with leadership team members Denise Henry, Felipe Moyano, Horacio Caceres, Humberto Sahade, Ignacio Ghiorzi, and Laercio Simões.

SingularityU Chapters are created in partnership with local program participants and SU alumni, and are located in some of the most innovative and upcoming global technology centers in the world. To date, there are 73 SingularityU Chapters in 45 countries.

“As our regional leadership teams build local communities in support of the development of exponential technologies, the ability for meaningful global and local impact grows,” said Dharmishta Rood, Director of Community Leadership. “Our new Chapter inCordoba marks another milestone in the scale and scope of our Singularity University community.”

SingularityU Chapters are central to enabling local regions to jump-start innovation through the curation of events featuring local experts, sponsorship of SU Global Impact Challenges (GICs), and other initiatives at the local level. Since launching the first program in 2015, SingularityU Chapters have hosted a number of unique events focused on applying exponential technologies to create impact. In 2016 SingularityU Chapters launched nearly 200 events, involving more than 13,000 attendees.

SU focuses on positively impacting the world’s greatest challenges through the use of exponential technologies—those which are rapidly accelerating and shaping major industries and all aspects of our lives, including artificial intelligence (AI), augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), data science, digital biology, medicine, nanotech and digital fabrication, networks and computing systems, robotics, and fintech.

“By establishing a local SingularityU Chapter, Cordoba will have access to exponential thinking and the SU global network. With these skills and opportunities, local entrepreneurs may improve their global perspective and have a more relevant impact globally, by enhancing their business models,” says Humberto Sahade, Chapter leadership team member.

The SingularityU Cordoba Chapter is now responsible for inviting and encouraging local entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, companies, and the public sector to share ideas and projects while working together as a team.
