What is SingularityU The Netherlands?

SingularityU The Netherlands consists of the Dutch Alumni of Singularity University, a benefit corporation committed to creating positive and sustainable global impact. We create programs to give people the tools and guidance to understand and apply cutting-edge technologies. This enables them to reimagine and reinvent their industries, companies, careers and lives.

We Educate, Empower and Inspire

We focus on the developing impact of converging exponential technologies on our society and businesses. Our Innovation Hub focuses on four key areas in which companies and scientists in the Netherlands are world leaders: food, health, mobility and water.

Part of a Community of Doers

Our community, consisting of individuals, businesses and public institutions, hosts regular events to share ideas and insights, ignite action and unite a community of doers. We also build experience centers to enable our community at large to understand the potential impact of exponential technologies on our society.
