What are the Global Grand Challenges?

At Singularity University, we believe that leveraging the convergence of exponential technologies will advance us along the path to solving our Global Grand Challenges (GGCs) and will shift humanity from an era of scarcity to one of abundance.

Each of our 12 GGC objectives is achievable through technology and innovative thinking, and each has the potential to ensure basic needs are met for all people while sustaining and improving the quality of life, and mitigating future risks.
That’s why we’re putting the world’s most promising social impact tech companies in the SU spotlight. We’ve teamed up with development organizations and companies like the United Nations Office of Information and Communications Technology, charity:water, American Red Cross, SAP, Genentech, HCL, and many others to evaluate the potential human and economic impact of this year’s GGC Award applicants, and to offer connections, opportunities, resources, and recognition to their projects.
The companies featured here are capable of positively impacting humanity on a global scale through the use of exponential technology.
