Passion for the Future
Our Mission Statement
Become a global organization, recognized by our customers for its professional leadership in understanding and sharing with passion the future technology megatrends and their impacts on our lives, both business and personal.
Our Role: why we exist
More than just being futurists, our role is to educate and bring the future of technology at a level accessible to a very wide audience in order for organisations, governments, teachers, students and parents to be better prepared for their own future and the wide range of opportunities in coming decades.
We believe that the future is fundamentally fascinating.
We are committed to share our passion for the future of technology and its implication both in business applications as well as in our personal life.
We have a contagious passion for the new generations and how they are influencing constant changes; at the same time, we believe in a need of mentoring for these new generations entering the world.
We believe that the human brain is more than just a calculating and storing device, the mind plays an important role and can’t be simply replaced by a man made machine.
We strongly believe in collaboration and collective intelligence, the essence of a great future for the human kind and our planet.
We value innovation, leadership, education, family and healthy lifestyle which include regular physical and mental activities, work-life balance as well as a commitment from everyone for a better world.
The Next 50 years
We believe that in the next 50 years we will experience unprecedented changes that will come at a very rapid pace. These will come from all angles and will have a key influence on life expectancy and life span, environment changes, energy, work, transportation, food, water and many other aspects of our life. We will witness key breakthrough in health sciences and areas such as biotechnology, genetic, bionic, robotic, nanotechnology and brain & mind research. One layer of research foundations for all these technologies development will come from the exponential revolution in computer sciences.
