Every summer, Singularity University (SU) goes searching for ideas. Not any idea will do. It has to be a big, world-changing idea, and each of the 80 extremely bright entrepreneurs participating in the annual Graduate Studies Program (GSP) have pledged to join SU on this idea quest.
The 10-week experience is intense. It’s packed with talks from technology experts and thought leaders, new concepts and novel ways of looking at the biggest problems facing humanity. The final exam is a team project in which groups identify a grand challenge and generate a revolutionary business idea to tackle it. The goal? To positively impact a billion people’s lives in the next decade.
But what is it really like to participate in the GSP? For those attending, it might be a bit of a blur in hindsight. For the rest of us, it’s a black box. So, this summer, Singularity Hub is proud to offer the story of GSP as told by the people with boots on the ground.
Our GSP 2015 interactive blog will gather and feature participant content—social media, photography, and video—to tell the story of the Graduate Studies Program through the eyes of participants in real-time. Browse what’s happening (and what’s happened) on the interactive timeline or scroll down for a deeper dive with the week-by-week recap.
You can keep up with the GSP15 blog by bookmarking this page or by signing up for the GSP15 Weekly Digest email. And if you’re participating in GSP, help document your experience with a tweet, photo, or video. This is your crowdsourced journal for the summer. Let’s make it epic.
