Earlier this year, Peter Diamandis and I organized a really amazing institution called Singularity University (SU) headquartered at NASA Ames in Mountain View, CA in the heart of Silicon Valley. SU was established with the support of Google, ePlanet Ventures, Autodesk and a dozen Associate Founders. SU runs a graduate/post-graduate program every summer. We also run an incredible 9-day “Executive Program” (EP).
Our 9-day EP is designed for entrepreneurs, CEOs, venture capitalists, and government leaders from around the world. The program concentrates on six exponential growing technologies: Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Nanotechnology, Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, Medicine and Human-Machine Interfaces, Networks & Computing Systems, and Energy & Environmental Systems. Attending the program gives you an understanding of how these accelerating technologies will transform your business and your industry by showing you what is in the lab today and where the technologies will be in 5 and 10 years. A detailed description of the program including video testimonials from past participants is available here: http://singularityu.org/ep
Our next EP will run from February 26th – March 7th, 2010 and I’d like to invite you to consider participating in the program.
If you’re interested in participating, you can complete the application here: http://singularityu.org/apply/#ex9
We held our inaugural Executive Program last month in November with outstanding results. Listed below are some quotes from participants and links to press coverage.
Quotes from EP Participants:
· “Every presentation and conversation blew my mind.”
· “EP09 has been one of the most exciting, intense and challenging experience of my life.”
· “I took away a lot of new ideas and amazing, amazing contacts. I think I will be able to formulate some very high impact messages for my company that could really shape its near term actions and strategies.”
· “I am grateful for the chance to be part of this experience. It is an exceptional opportunity. It is so rare in life to have a chance (particularly later in life) to spend nine days with equally qualified, equally inspired, and equally capable people.”
