Anticipating Exponential Change

SingularityU Benelux and Minkowski know the incredible positive impact, as well as the devastating power exponential trends can have. If the viral spread of COVID-19 teaches us one thing, is that it’s hard for us humans who are linearly wired, to comprehend these exponential trends.

Being able to anticipate and therefore identify both business opportunities as well as societal threats, is increasingly important in a time when the world is changing faster than ever before. Moving from a linear to an exponential mindset, is one of the key tools of our current curriculum.

“Understanding the disruptive nature of exponential trends in these unprecedented times has become an indispensable asset for any leader in tech, business and government.”

Diederick Croese – CEO SingularityU Benelux

Why you should participate?

  • Moderated Online & Offline Collaboration

    The online deep dives that we have developed are not a digital version of what you can normally experience in the offline SingularityU programs. We believe that the power of a digital platform lies in the in-depth collaboration that can be facilitated between participants and faculty. Our online modules are therefore more interactive and highly collaborative. Our faculty will actively engage with participants in proven learning and collaboration techniques that we have developed in collaboration with Minkowski, Agency for Applied Futures.

  • Learning Acceleration Box

    We will provide participants with a box full of materials that will accelerate the learning process and weaves the physical and the digital, together as one experience. At the end of a module each participant will have a document for future reference that was co-created with all participants and faculty.

  • SingularityU Faculty

    Every online deep dive session will feature one member of the SingularityU faculty that will give a brief inspirational challenge to the participants. In the hour that follows this keynote, participants will work in several group activities facilitated by top notch facilitators to translate the thinking to their practice and derive lessons for the future in collaboration with the faculty member.

  • Overall Learning Objectives

    The objective of the online modules is to learn about new exponential technologies; to learn new tools for sensemaking and future exploration; to understand
    the drivers behind exponential change and to give participants access to information via a SingularityU certified program so they can make well informed decisions to anticipate future changes.
