Come See Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus Kick Off Singularity University’s GSP 2015

Join Singularity University on June 15 at Mountain View’s Computer History Museum for the Graduate Studies Program opening ceremony. Hear inspiring talks from SU cofounders, Peter Diamandis and Ray Kurzweil, and this year’s keynote speaker, Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus. This event will sell out—so get your tickets now!

Summer is a special time at Singularity University. Every year, 80 entrepreneurs make their way from across the globe to attend the Graduate Studies Program (GSP). Their aim? Leverage today’s most powerful technologies to positively impact a billion people in the next decade. To make the impossible possible.

It takes a special individual to heed that call.

The 10-week GSP is multicultural, intensive, and interactive—the chance to think big and take big action. Participants learn about today’s greatest technological levers, visit firms at the forefront of tech, form groups to tackle a global grand challenge, and roll all that up into a world-changing business idea.

Every year is special—and 2015 is no exception. Singularity University is proud to partner with Google and offer this year’s program to extraordinary individuals from all over the world, regardless of financial status.

The 2015 GSP Opening Ceremony, at Mountain View’s Computer History Museum, features talks from Singularity University’s always compelling cofounders, Peter Diamandis and Ray Kurzweil. In addition, SU is honored and thrilled to welcome this year’s keynote speaker, Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, to GSP.

Muhammad Yunus and Peter Diamandis.

Yunus is a Bangladeshi social entrepreneur, banker, economist, and civil society leader known for his groundbreaking work in microcredit and microfinance and for founding the Grameen Bank—an organization that lends to those too poor to secure traditional loans. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006.

Earlier this year, Singularity University and Yunus Social Business announced a partnership to impact global development in some of the world’s most vulnerable areas.

Navigating GSP is no small feat—so it only makes sense to open the summer with a celebration, and you’re invited. After the ceremony, wine and dessert will be served providing an opportunity to meet and mingle with the participants of this year’s GSP class.

Help us celebrate the power of people, ideas, and technology to solve the world’s greatest challenges on June 15 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. Go here to reserve your spot now!
