Singularity's Executive Program is an opportunity to bring people from every conceivable walk of life with people that share a common aspiration that is to do better, to be better, and to make a positive impact on people’s lives.

Gavin Newsom
Governor, State of California

The best way to describe what happened to me after a week of hearing some of the brightest people in tech talk about the future is that they dramatically changed my perspective. Come to find out, I had a very narrow lens through which I viewed the world; they replaced it with a wide angle lens that goes beyond our planet and looks far into the future.

Jennifer Matt
President, Web2Print Experts, Inc.

The Executive Program was a truly mind-expanding experience which should help prepare me for the extraordinary changes to come.
