About this program

The SingularityU The Netherlands Summit brings the world's leading speakers and experts on exponentially accelerating technologies together with inspirators who are changing and shaping the world in a positive way, providing us with the mindset, knowledge and tools we need in an exponentially changing world. 

Be The Change

We’re encountering some of the greatest transitions that any generation has ever had to face. Technological disruption is already affecting every part of our lives; every business, every industry, every 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. Making sure that these technologies are used in a positive way, solving our grandest challenges in the process. We not only have the ability, but also the duty to strive for a world of abundance. We’re all in this together. And only by actively participating, while discussing the ethics, the policies and the world we want to live in, we will be able to shape a brighter future for us and our children.

Some of the organizations whom attended the Summit 2017

We believe you can make that difference. We believe you can be the change that this world so desperately needs.

What kinds of policies do we need? What is the impact on our economy? How can we better distribute our wealth evenly throughout the world? Do we need a systems change? What does it actually mean to be human? What is a good life? How can we truly unlock our own potential? These are some of the key questions that need to be answered and will be discussed during the Summit.

What can I expect at a SingularityU Benelux Summit?

We'll introduce you to the themes of accelerating change and help you understand how emerging technologies will impact your industry and regulatory environment. This will enable you to prepare your organization for future developments. We will inspire you with stories of people that already embody this change, leading the way forward into shaping a brighter future. They will share their lessons learned and provide you with the mindset and tools needed to positively impact your life, your business and our society as a whole.
