Advancing Global Impact
Bringing Disruption to
We bring together global leaders in industries, government, and academic organizations to help each transform to address competition, disruption and innovation through education, consulting and partnerships.
Logistics and Transportation
By 2030, driverless systems will be ubiquitous. The Hyperloop will redefine short haul flights by transporting individuals across enormous landmasses at speeds previously only matched by airplanes. Traditional logistics hubs will have to adapt to the impact of technology and the opening of new routes with the changes in the Earth’s climate. Faster and cheaper tracking, and information gathering, along with drone deliveries, shared freight services, and new business models will fundamentally change the function and model of logistics.
How will goods and people be moved tomorrow?
The concept of protecting one’s cherished assets and loved ones has existed for centuries. However, with the advent of revolutionary technologies such as the blockchain and big-data analytics, the premise of insurance is being rewritten today. With more than $4.6 trillion dollars of premiums written every year, there is tremendous room for disruptive opportunity.

The sky’s the limit – literally. By 2030, driverless systems will be ubiquitous. Urban skyways will have self-flying pods summoned through smartphones. Highly anticipated technologies such as the SpaceX transatlantic flights will rewrite our expectations on commutes, while space travel will soon be a reality.
How will we get from A to B tomorrow?
By 2030, the world will have 8.5 billion people to feed. However, a large proportion of our cropland experience soil erosion, reduced fertility, and overgrazing. With growing demand for food, food security is an interdisciplinary concern that crosses geographical and political borders. Data-driven solutions, alternative sources of nutrients, and shifting of diets are needed to maximize our scarce resources.
What will we eat in the future?
An additional one billion people will join urban centers by 2030, making the urban population comprise 66% of total global population. 90% of this increase will happen in Asia and Africa. Public services such as roads, sanitation, electricity, housing, and safety at both national and municipal levels need to be improved and maintained. Smart cities will integrate smart solutions to build progressive, efficient and sustainable environments.

The cost of education continues to move upwards in the developed world while at the base of the pyramid, millions continue to lack access to quality education. Education needs to continuously evolve. Future classrooms will incorporate state-of-the-art technology to equip students with critical-thinking and problem-solving skills regardless of where they are or what economic condition they are in.
How will we learn tomorrow?
With renewable sources of energy increasingly more affordable, reliable, and accessible, the future looks uncertain for fossil fuels and its massive value chain. Solar, wind and hydro will lead the charge, driving changes in distribution, storage and usage. With more employees in renewable energy than in oil and gas industries in countries such as China, the shift towards green energy has already begun and is gaining momentum.

Banking and Finance
Even as banks rebrand and expand their product offerings, they are shrinking their retail footprint and adapting to a new generation of customers who are technically demanding and relationship avoiding. Retail banking can be conducted without the existence of centralized institutions. Instantaneous clearing and settlement can be facilitated with blockchain solutions. Global payments and remittances can be conducted for fractions of the cost. Loan underwriting can be facilitated with powerful smart contracts and derisked with data mining.
