We’re thrilled to announce our acquisition of Futurism, a digital media company focused on leveraging breakthrough science and technology for global good.
With an audience of more than 10 million readers, tech executives, thought leaders, and architects of tomorrow, Futurism is widely respected for publishing the latest in world news, products, and narratives as they relate to the future of science and technology. In addition to acquiring the media site, we have also acquired Futurism Creative, an advertising studio, and Futurism Studios, a digital production studio. We’re excited to be welcoming these new capabilities—and talented team members—into the SU family.
As our CEO, Rob Nail noted in the press release announcing this news, “SU and Futurism both have a passion for sharing practical examples of how science and exponential technologies can be harnessed to positively impact our world. Our shared mission empowers our combined communities to collaborate and tell the stories of tomorrow, today.”
Through Futurism, SU is able to further expand our narrative-building capabilities within our existing 10x Strategy Development solution. SU’s enterprise clients will have new tools to envision their organization’s future scenarios, create compelling ways to bring this new future vision to life, and share their stories with a highly engaged and relevant audience.
