SU was established with the support of Google, ePlanet Ventures, Autodesk and a dozen Associate Founders. SU runs a graduate/post-graduate program every summer. They also run an incredible 4-day “Executive Program” (EP).
Their 4-day EP is designed for entrepreneurs, CEOs, venture capitalists, and government leaders from around the world. The program concentrates on six exponential growing technologies: Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Nanotechnology, Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, Medicine and Human-Machine Interfaces, Networks & Computing Systems, and Energy & Environmental Systems.
Attending the program gives you an understanding of how these accelerating technologies will transform your business and your industry by showing you what is in the lab today and where the technologies will be in 5 and 10 years.
A recent executive participant described the discussions, new connections and expert speakers as “a program that generates actionable insights for executives with a goal of business sustainability. The focus on the convergence of issues driving exponential change is light years ahead of traditional single trend analysis.” Their next EP will run from December 9-12, 2010 – more info here.
