SingularityU Chapters facilitate vibrant local innovation ecosystems, whose participants focus on furthering the SU mission of leveraging exponential technologies to solve humanity’s grand challenges. These Chapters regularly host events within their cities across the globe. In 2016, 60 Chapters in 37 countries hosted 190 events that attracted more than 13,000 attendees (download our 2016 Year in Review report for more information). We now have 83 Chapters in 48 countries.
Chapters are flourishing around the world thanks to the collaborative, volunteer leadership teams working together to convene local innovators in regular gatherings that attract fascinating speakers on a wide variety of topics. Chapters further SU’s goals to educate, empower, and inspire leaders through 4 core areas:
- Connection: Creating and facilitating an engaged local community
- Events: Facilitating events about exponential technologies and global grand challenges
- Innovation: Sharing information about local innovations with the SU community
- Impact: Focusing on impact in collaboration with Singularity University

Participate in Chapter Events
Local Chapter events provide a great opportunity to connect with exceptional individuals who reside in or visit a particular area and have a common interest in solving humanity’s biggest problems through exponential technology. All Chapter events feature community and connection-building components and often feature speakers about cutting-edge technology. The attendees of Chapter events span industries and vocations—including entrepreneurs, policy designers, and academics, as well as business and NGO leaders.Find local events near you
