The Singularity University community is robust, and growing rapidly around the world. Since launching the Chapters program in mid-2015, we’ve seen a huge amount of engagement in local communities.
The number of Chapters doubled in the past year, from 29 to 60, and we now have Chapters 37 countries. In 2016, SingularityU Chapters hosted 190 events that drew more than 13,000 attendees, not including the thousands who attended the Summits.
One of the most successful aspects of these active Chapters is the collaborative teamwork among volunteers who are working together to implement local activities that enrich their communities. Chapters also collaborate across programs, such as Global Impact Challenges and Summits. Collectively, these activities and events help raise the awareness of the larger SU mission to leverage exponential technologies to solve humanity's grand challenges while enriching the quality of the local innovation ecosystem in each participating city.
We are pleased to present a detailed look back at the spectacular efforts of each Chapter in 2016.
