A Conference-festival envisioning radically beautiful possibilities. Connect with like-minded dreamers, learn about visionary innovations, play with tech from the future and party like it’s 2099.
Mohammed Ali said, “impossible” is for those “who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it.” We maintain an open-mind to possibilities--even if they challenge our long held beliefs.
CRITICIZE BY CREATING
We don’t waste our time complaining about the old, but focus all of our energy on creating new models and solutions that make the “problems” of our world obsolete. A futurist does not predict the future, he/she creates it.
MAXIMIZE HUMAN FLOURISHING
We are not about novelty for its own sake. The latest gadgets and toys are fine, but we’re more interested in asking: “How does this contribute to human wellbeing?”
"IF BURNING MAN AND TED HAD A BABY, IT WOULD BE FUTURE FRONTIERS."
WHAT TO EXPECT?
An experience designed to take you into the future.
Future Frontiers is a global community of visionary entrepreneurs and creatives whom are redesigning the paradigms of culture and society, often beginning with personal transformation. This event is distinctly apolitical. We aim to inspire and catalyze positive social change through the power of collaboration, creativity and innovation. We sum this up in the phrase, “criticize by creating.” If you are an entrepreneur or creative with aspirations to positively influence the world, there is no better place to meet like-minded collaborators and be transformatively inspired than Future Frontiers.
Future Frontiers is NOT for those who are:
Comfortable with the status-quo.
Uncomfortable with contrarian ideas.
Focused solely on profit.
Hoping others will address the world’s biggest challenges.
Don’t buy a ticket if the above describes you.
What will I get from this event?
Learn from some of the world’s most future-thinking, visionary entrepreneurs and creative thinkers. Meet extraordinary people working on the coolest projects on the planet. Feel yourself moved into a state of awe about the possibilities of the future. Leave the rest to serendipity!
What is the event format?
Short format talks kick off Future Frontiers. These are called Seeds talks. They are intended to share stories about real projects that are shaping the future and giving rise to human flourishing. The following day is filled with breakout sessions called Sprouts. Sprouts enable you to go deeper into the ideas and are very often interactive. Blooms is a celebration of the positive future we are all envisioning--with life music, performances and immersive tech installations. The final day of the event is called Harvest, and was designed to maximize the retention of information (it can be a lot!) and allow deeper conversations and networking to take place. This linear format is designed to maximize the impact of the ideas and stimulate as many new connections as possible (both between individuals and in your brain).
Who will I meet at this event?
Many attendees let us know each year that they’ve met co-founders, creative collaborators, best friends and new loves at Future Frontiers.
Expect to meet incredibly dynamic individuals from diverse backgrounds—all dedicated to one thing: Maximizing human flourishing, and often through unconventional means. You may meet a blockchain developer redefining finance, a bio hacker experimenting with her own physiology to optimize performance, an artist creating work that shows us visions of a future world, an entrepreneur figuring out how to solve a visionary challenge, to name only a few examples.
The magic of the Future Frontiers community is in this diversity. When many unique lenses overlap, a kaleidoscopic effect occurs, and we begin to see a holistic, magnificent worldview pregnant with new possibility. You may not agree with every word you hear, and this is part of the plan. Shatter your preconceived notions and open up to seeing the world as you’ve never seen it before.
By getting involved with Future Frontiers, you help share our ethos and expand the community.
