“Every year, the Global Summit acts as a hub where the world’s most exponential thinkers come together and drive actual, tangible change in new ways,” said Will Weisman, executive director of Singularity University Summits. “In addition to Summit presentations and panel discussions, attendees have the opportunity to interact with SU Ventures companies at our EXPO, brainstorm with SU Experts from around the globe, broaden their networks, and seek out collaborative problem-solving opportunities.”

Who should attend:

  • Executives and leaders in business, government, and NGOs
  • Senior product, innovation, and R&D leaders in large and small organizations
  • Anyone interested in understanding the impact of exponential technologies
  • Future-focused entrepreneurs looking to transform radical ideas into tangible impact on a global scale
  • Senior leaders looking to explore, envision, and accelerate the future of their organizations

“We are seeing businesses make incredible strides in transforming legacy technologies to explore new solutions for growth; however, there is still work to be done to accelerate innovation and avoid wasted costs, efforts and resources,” said Nishita Henry, principal, Chief Innovation Officer, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Singularity University sparks this effort by inspiring companies to think differently. Deloitte Catalyst continues the journey with its global solutions and capabilities for multinational enterprises and startups alike. Today’s complex problems simply cannot be solved by one organization, person, or startup alone. Through Deloitte Catalyst and Singularity University, businesses can now connect through ‘controlled collisions’ in order to solve the unique challenges of our modern and ever-changing world.”
