The speed at which technology advances is exponential, and as a result it can be challenging for us to grasp how quickly our society can change. This exponential rate of change creates amazing opportunities for entrepreneurs to build businesses that can not only positively impact society, but also shape the future.

Nobody understands this better than Dr. Peter H. Diamandis, who has devoted his life to using exponential technologies to transform and build the future of a number of industries. Named one of "The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” by Fortune Magazine, Diamandis is the Founder/ Co-Founder of the XPRIZE Foundation, which solves the world’s grand challenges through incentive competitions; Human Longevity Inc., which is transforming the healthcare industry and solving aging-related diseases; Planetary Resources, which is making once-scarce resources abundant; and Singularity University, a graduate-level Silicon Valley institution that studies exponentially growing technologies.

Join this interactive online discussion as Diamandis and Adeo Ressi (CEO of the Founder Institute) discuss how entrepreneurs can leverage exponentially growing technologies to better the lives of billions.
