Ready to change the world?

We’re encountering some of the greatest transitions that any generation has ever had to face. Technological disruption is affecting every part of our lives; every business, every industry, our society - even what it means to be “human”. These changes show no signs of slowing down; in fact, they’re accelerating rapidly.

We - as human beings - have an essential role to play in this. Will we allow technology to disrupt everything, or do we seize the opportunity and make sure that these technologies are used in a positive way, solving our grandest challenges in the process? To achieve this we need Exponential Leaders: pioneers, change makers, game changers - people who embrace change and see it as an opportunity to grow and make a difference.

Will you take responsibility and seize this opportunity? Are you the one to guide your organization towards a lasting impact in the world? Do you have the courage to start a movement of positive change? Then, the world needs you!

We invite you to the SingularityU The Netherlands Executive Program, an exclusive, 3-day immersive program limited to 50 influential participants. You will begin your journey towards Exponential Leadership here.

Within this program, we bring leading (international) experts and thinkers together with extensive knowledge of exponential technologies, global impact, ethics, leadership and organizational change.

  2. See opportunities to solve global challenges,
  3. Identify exponential technologies that will help with your endeavors

About this program

The SingularityU NL Executive Program is an exclusive, 3-day immersive program that is limited to 50 executives and top influencers who want to become the leaders of the future and create the future of their organization in a world driven by exponential growth.

The program will take place in Eindhoven – the Design and Tech capital of the Netherlands. We will combine inspirational speakers, engaging workshops and intriguing site visits. In our unique classroom setting we'll introduce you to the latest innovations and developments in exponential technologies and challenge you to think about changing the future by exploring moonshot ideas to solve humanity’s biggest challenges.

During the program you will:

  1. Begin your journey towards becoming an exponential leader.

    With technological developments accelerating quickly, we need to learn how to deal with these changes, how this impacts us as human beings. Gain insights into how to unlock your true potential and embrace a new skillset, toolset and mindset that inspires and empowers both the individual and the organization, to adapt and evolve.

  2. Learn about current and state of the art exponential technologies.

    Your view of what the future holds will permanently shift after your exposure to exponential technologies. You’ll start to see how technology can unlock solutions that will change the world and your future.

  3. Understand the power of moonshot thinking and the potential to impact 1 billion people.

    The Global Grand Challenges (GGCs) are worldwide problems too big to ignore. To solve these challenges requires the same kind of extraordinary “moonshot” thinking that took humanity to the moon – the belief that we can achieve anything that can be imagined and knowing this can be realized through the application of new technology.

  4. Discover new tools and skills to translate your new knowledge into action.

    Tools for integrating these concepts within your organization are at the core of the program: lean startup processes, DIY tools, rapid prototyping, future forecasting and scenario based reasoning, unlocking human potential, and open source approaches to innovation.

  5. Become inspired by examples of how people are using exponential technology to solve global grand challenges.

    Domain experts and renowned speakers will share case-studies about businesses that have already set an example that solving the Global Grand Challenges also makes good business sense. Triple bottom line thinking.

  6. Develop a step-by-step action plan to scale your impact.

    In a mixture of lectures, workshops, site-visits, informal evening discussions, pitch sessions, and free time in the innovation hub, you will radically shift your perspective on the future and your ability to leverage new technologies in a highly competitive world.
