Santa Clara, CA —January 04, 2023 — Singularity Group, a global impact organization that looks into the future to help leaders better understand how exponential technology will shape businesses and societies in the years ahead, today announced the recipients of the company’s first-ever Chapter Impact Awards. The awards recognize projects that create real-world social impact in communities around the world and support future leaders by helping to shape a better tomorrow.
Singularity Chapters are volunteer communities, each led by global ambassadors, who focus on furthering Singularity’s goal to leverage exponential technologies to solve humanity’s grand challenges. There are currently 34 Singularity Chapters worldwide in 17 countries.
“We are excited to honor these award winners who have created initiatives that are making a tremendously positive difference in their communities,” said Darlene Damm, Vice President of Community and Impact at Singularity Group. “Singularity Chapters understand that to lead in tomorrow’s world, they need to create impact today. We call on all businesses to look towards creating impact in their communities and around the world.”
"Our world has no shortage of smart, capable innovators, and when they have access to the right community and tools they will not only solve local challenges, but inspire and teach others to do the same,” said Anuka Roinishvili, who oversees Singularity’s Chapters Program.
“We want to discover, facilitate and improve the learning process for all of humanity,” said chapter global ambassador Roberto Crosignani.
“I hope this project will be introduced in other communities because it has really made a difference in my life and I hope it will make a difference in the lives of others too,” shared one of the participants.
"In Latin America, we have a lot of young entrepreneurs that want to make a positive impact, but the context is too challenging. So we want to inspire them to embark on disruptive startups based on exponential technologies to transform reality," said Federico Marque, the Buenos Aires chapter global ambassador.
The Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico Chapter has partnered with TEC University to explore creating substations that generate water from the air around the city of Monterrey to supply 30 percent of the water demand of the city. They are in the research phase of this project and are working to understand its feasibility. They hope to help solve the city’s water crisis.
One of the most globally impactful chapter projects to date, the Kyiv, Ukraine Chapter is partnering with Unlimited Tomorrow to deliver free prosthetics to those injured by the war in Ukraine.
