SingularityU Germany Summit 2017

Dear SingularityU Germany Summit Guests,

On April 20-21, 2016, more than 600 attendees ranging from CEOs of fortune 500 companies to leading young innovators from across the globe attended our first SingularityU Germany Summit, which was a huge success.

SingularityU Germany Summit returns to Berlin on May 3-4, 2017 at the new venue bcc Berlin Congress Center.
This time, our summit will not only have a new series of themes and speakers, but also a creative new summit format, which will make it highly attractive for both our old and new attendees.

SingularityU Germany Summit is designed to transfer an understanding of the strategic relevance of disruptive technologies in an era of extraordinary innovation. Solving the world’s biggest challenges are best achieved if every individual makes a contribution. That’s why we aim to ensure that a thematic diversity is part of the learning, innovation and community experience we deliver.

We are committed to fostering a dialogue and to help crafting joint courses of action in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. On both days of the summit, we will be mutually learning from our SU speakers and local experts about the latest trends and cutting-edge developments in the areas of Exponential Organizations, The Future of Work, Mobility in 2025, Finance of Tomorrow, 3D Printing & Manufacturing, Networking & Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Life Sciences & Digital Health. Beyond traditional talk sessions, innovative and interactive new formats such as "deep-dive" sessions are also to be expected.  

If you have already participated in our first SingularityU Germany Summit, our second summit will be the continuation and evolution of your discovery journeys - no matter if you are an eager entrepreneur, a future leader, a decision-maker or an interested individual; If you are a new attendee who will make your experience with SingularityU Summit in Germany for the very first time, our summit offers you a brilliant chance to familiarize yourself with the benefit corporation Singularity University; to explore questions that are addressed to some main global grand challenges; and to exchange your own ideas and thoughts with other participants in a very interactive environment.

We are looking forward to meeting you at our SingularityU Germany Summit 2017 in Berlin!
