A Background on Singularity
Singularity University was founded on the premise that the world’s greatest problems are the world’s greatest opportunities. We deeply believe that the world has all the necessary ingredients to tackle our biggest challenges and create abundance for all. We have the visionaries, the teachers, the technologies, the makers, and the capital. There are millions of people across the globe who are working tirelessly to create positive change.
When all of these ingredients combine, the possibility for impact becomes exponential. We are a platform for promoting new ways of thinking and innovating, a launchpad for emerging ventures, and a powerful global community of doers and leaders—all poised to solve humanity’s biggest problems.
Founded by Peter Diamandis and Ray Kurzweil in 2008, the program and related events have led to chapters around the world and graduates with a deeper and wider perspective on local and global challenges. Singularity University is located in NASA Research Park in California, USA.
