To reflect everything we have become since our founding in 2008, and more importantly, to showcase and accelerate our bold vision for our future, Singularity University has undergone an extensive company-wide rebrand.

We’ve updated our website and moved to a new domain: su.org.

We’ve also unveiled a new logo and brand narrative.

What you see here is the result of a comprehensive 18-month process. We spoke with alumni, faculty, investors, community members, partners, prospects, employees, and other stakeholders. And through this process we were reminded that our community and impact are the heart and soul of Singularity University.

We’re proud to now have alumni in over 100 countries and chapters in 50 cities.

2016 Global Solutions Program Opening Ceremony

As we created our new brand, we wanted to emphasize what is unique about Singularity University: the transformative experience our participants report, the people who make up our community, and our shared mission of impact. Our new tagline expresses our invitation to join us on our mission and underscores our belief that everyone has the potential to create exponential impact:

Be Exponential.

Our new logo is bold and vibrant like our community and was designed with our shared mission and community at the core:

The mark represents all of the necessary ingredients for impact coming together in an exponential mindset and going back out into the world to create global impact and, in turn, a more abundant future.

Over the next 30 years, humanity will encounter some of the greatest transitions any generation has ever had to face. Technological disruption is reshaping every part of our lives… every business, every industry, every society, even what it means to be ‘human.’ We in the SU community know that exponential technology can be used to solve humanity’s biggest challenges.

Our refreshed brand signals our intent to better address our community’s needs and ambitions, and to scale our impact and grow.

Singularity University is where the necessary ingredients for exponential impact come together as one. You are — or could be — one of those critical ingredients. Your journey is our journey — and we are here to help you and your initiatives be exponential.

We are very grateful to those of you who have been on the journey with us.

Without the Singularity University community of doers, zero-gravity 3D printing, drones for disaster relief, a simple blood test to help cure cancer by catching it early, artificial intelligence providing equal access to mental healthcare, and phones that help the visually impaired see, might not exist.

We look forward to going on this journey with you.

This is only the beginning.

Be Exponential.

Rob is the CEO and Associate founder of Singularity University. He brings a unique entrepreneurial and impact focused approach to growing a non-traditional university as a model for the future and a forum to catalyze a global ecosystem that leverages exponential technologies to help solve humanity’s grand challenges.

Prior to Singularity, he co-founded Velocity11 in 1999, building automation equipment and robotics for cancer research and drug discovery. After being acquired by Agilent Technologies in 2007, he traded the CEO role for a general manager role attempting to be a catalyst for change at a big company. He gave up in 2009 to go surfing and eventually find his true calling and biggest challenge yet with Singularity University.
