What is Singularity University ?

Our mission is to educate, inspire and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges.

Singularity University is a benefit corporation based on NASA Research Park in Silicon Valley. The conference SU provides educational programs, innovative partnerships and a business accelerator to help individuals, businesses, institutions, investors, NGOs and governments understand cutting-edge technologies and how to utilize these technologies to positively impact billions of people. Since 2009, SU has hosted students and industry leaders from more than 90 countries and has prepared both individuals and organizations for exponential technology changes through a series of events, conferences and education programs. These experiences have facilitated a fundamental change in thinking to fully recognize and understand the broad implications of technology changes and more importantly, how the combined effects of these transitions will transform everything around us— rapidly. This conference in Berlin is a must-have conference.

Singularity University, where the world’s brightest minds convene to attack the world’s toughest challenges.
