Singularity University IS our community. The SU community comprises people from across the globe who are interested in applying exponential technologies to tackle humanity's grand challenges and create an abundant future. By connecting with each other, they form a global innovation ecosystem with the vision and ambition to transform billion-person problems into bold solutions for the future.
The SU community is where an entrepreneur imagines with a nanotechnologist, experiments with a synthetic biology algorithm, builds with a prototype machinist, collaborates with a manufacturing engineer, proves a new concept in the field with a global NGO, scales it with a venture capitalist, and finally emerges with an exponential solution to an urgent global challenge.
In short, the SU community is a place where all the ingredients come together required to have exponential impact on the biggest problems of the world. All we’re missing is you.
SingularityU Chapters facilitate vibrant local innovation ecosystems, whose participants focus on furthering the SU mission of leveraging exponential technologies to solve humanity’s grand challenges. These Chapters regularly host events within their cities across the globe. In 2016, 60 Chapters in 37 countries hosted 190 events with over 13,000 attendees. In Denmark there is currently a Copenhagen Chapter that hosts free salons and produces the non-profit program Danske Ideer.
Participating in your local chapter's events is a great way to meet really cool people. The Copenhagen chapter's events are totally free to attend and usually followed by an open bar and networking session.
Global Impact Competition
Danske Ideer brings together the minds of tomorrow to learn from top experts in the fields of robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and computing. Participants then apply this knowledge by working in teams to solve one of humanity's grand challenges. At the end of the program, the participant who has made the most positive impact is awarded with a seat at the elite Global Solutions Program, which takes place in Silicon Valley at Singularity University's headquarters for 10 weeks during the summer.
To apply and attend is absolutely free! The program is in English and usually takes place in March. Click here for more information.
