    Peter Diamandis

    World-Leading Futurist and Entrepreneur


    Peter Diamandis is Chairman and CEO of the X-Prize Foundation, leading organization that offers large incentive prizes to drive radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.

    Best known for the $10 million Ansari X-Prize for private spaceflight and the $10 million progressive automotive X-Prize for 100 mile-per-gallon equivalent cars, the foundation is now launching prizes in exploration, life sciences, energy, and education.

    Diamandis is also an international leader in the commercial space arena, having founded and run many of the leading entrepreneurial companies in this sector including Zero Gravity Corporation, the Rocket Racing League and Space Adventures.

    As Chairman of the Singularity University -leading institution for the study of exponentially growing technologies-, Diamandis counsels the world's top enterprises on how to utilize exponential technologies and incentivized innovation to dramatically accelerate their business objectives.

    Diamandis is the New York Times and Amazon.com best-selling author of "Abundance: The Future is Better than you Think", laying out how we will soon be able to meet and exceed the basic needs of every man, woman and child on the planet.

    Diamandis is a dynamic inspirational speaker, described by many as "the best in the industry." He delivers real value to his audience by showing them how to drive breakthrough thinking and innovation within their company that offer clear, measurable and objective results.

    Peter Diamandis holds degrees in Molecular Genetics and Aerospace Engineering from MIT and a master's degree from Harvard Medical School. His personal motto is: "The best way to predict the future is to create it yourself!"


    Creating a Culture of Innovation

    Based on the success of the Ansari X-Prize (which stimulated the creation of a billion-dollar private spaceflight industry) and the success of additional prizes, Diamandis explains how to incentivize breakthroughs in your company and industry, and how the rapid growth of key exponential technologies are empowering individuals to do what previously only governments were able to achieve.

    Understanding Humanity's Future

    Abundance for all is within our grasp. This bold and contrarian view, backed up by exhaustive research, introduces a near-term future with exponentially growing technologies that conspire to better the lives of billions. Diamandis examines human need by category and addresses how a range of powerful technologies are transforming what was once scarce into something abundant.

    Disruptive Innovation

    Diamandis discusses how breakthroughs in several technological areas will transform products, companies, industries and even society over the next 20 years. He provides key insights on how human society has transformed from "local and linear" to "global and exponential," and how this change is accelerating disruptive stress or opportunity - depending on the company's point of view.

    From "Linear" to "Exponential" Gain

    YouTube went from a startup on Chad Hurley's personal credit cards to being purchased by Google for $1.4 billion in less than 18 months. At the same time that billion-dollar startups are materializing -seemingly out of nowhere-, century old companies are crumbling. The difference between Kodak and Instagram is the difference between a "linear" and an "exponential" organization.
