As 2018 comes to a close, I wanted to thank our community for what’s been an amazing year. How amazing, you ask? Well, check this out:

  1. Our community grew to nearly 200,000 members who have launched more than 5,000 impact initiatives thus far! Thank you for coming along on this epic ride with us.
  2. We kicked off our 10-year anniversary celebration (be sure to download our 10-year retrospective magazine!) and mobilized our community around a global impact challenge. (Have you taken the challenge yet?)
  3. We completed our Series B funding round, ensuring we have the resources we need to continue expanding SU globally, and welcomed Erik Anderson as our new Board Chairman.
  4. And speaking of that, we signed our 4th, 5th, and 6th Country Partners. Is your country next?
  5. We reached a total of 143 SingularityU Chapters worldwide in 65 countries. I invite you to find a Chapter to join if you haven’t done so already. If you don’t see one near you, apply to lead one!
