From my first encounter with Singularity University at Exponential Medicine a few years ago, I knew there was something special about this community of dreamers, bold thinkers, innovators, technologists, entrepreneurs, investors, and curious learners. Upon joining the company a year ago, it was clear to me that Singularity University had been brewing up some exciting new digital products to further support, elevate, and expand the magic and power of this community within the Digital Business team, and in the next chapter of our organization's life, we would transform into a key player in the future of education.After gathering feedback through conversations and meetings with SU community leaders, Chapter members, partners, conference attendees, program alumni, and colleagues alike, we are working on some new features that will soon transform SingularityU Memberships into a social network! And we are just getting started.

We’ve always had a vision of enabling our impassioned global community to collaborate across boundaries. As a first step, we built a Global Directory that for the first time let our community members find and be found by people with diverse backgrounds, areas of expertise, and interests. Since then, we’ve been working steadily to evolve the Directory into something far more interactive and actionable. Our plan? We’re about to unveil new functionality that takes our humble Directory to a whole new level: it’s a social network!

With these new features, anyone with a SingularityU Membership will be able to add connections and send direct messages instantly. Today, there are nearly 70,000 active members sharing their thoughts and ideas with colleagues and friends around the world. Imagine the power of being able to broaden your network so rapidly and easily! But this is just the beginning. We have a larger roadmap to reach our goal of fostering more connection and collaboration within our community.
We strive to empower our community to collaborate, connect, and talk about using exponential technologies to find and forward relevant and efficient solutions to humanity's grand challenges. So how will these new features make an impact on you and your efforts? We hope this new functionality helps make the world a bit smaller, smarter, and friendlier by helping you cross geographical, experiential, and industry/sector boundaries. Here are just a few possible examples of how this upgraded SingularityU Membership could take your work and relationships to the next level in the near future:
