Introduction to SU Country Partners

Do you wish you had SU in your region? Singularity University (SU) Country Partners work with governments, universities, foundations, NGOs, and corporations to elevate the state of innovation in their respective countries and bring us all closer to an abundant future.

Country Partners accelerate global innovation by providing local access and delivery of SU programs and resources. Operating under the SingularityU brand, all Country Partner programs are delivered by certified SU faculty experts in exponential technologies, exponential leadership, and exponential organizations.They invoke SU’s proven curriculum to help individuals and enterprises identify and launch innovative solutions to humanity’s grand challenges. SU Country Partners also offer proximity and deep knowledge of local issues and innovations, as well as global thought leadership.

This is the most intensive partnership we offer. And while it’s a major undertaking to unite diverse and dispersed stakeholders around a common mission, the benefits of doing so are immense. To date, Singularity University has eight Country Partners covering 13 countries: SingularityU The Netherlands (2016), SingularityU Nordic (2017), SingularityU Canada (2018), SingularityU Portugal (2018), SingularityU South Africa (2018), SingularityU Italy (2018), SingularityU Brazil (2019), and SingularityU Australia (2019).
