  • Exponential Innovator Certification Course

We are living in an incredible moment in human history. Exponential technologies are moving fast, such as computing power, which doubles in processing capacity every year, solar energy, which doubles in performance every 18 months, and 3D printers, which exponentially improve speed and resolution.

This is what we call the Fourth Industrial Revolution, announced in 2016 by the World Economic Forum and envisioned as the first industrial revolution that involves nothing less than a transformation of humanity.

This Fourth Industrial Revolution, led by the rise and confluence of different exponential technologies, and characterised by the concepts of exponentiality and disruption, is questioning the economic, social and political models that have served us up to now, making many of them obsolete and fundamentally changing the way we live, work and relate to each other.

Today, the biggest challenge lies in generating and developing this new exponential way of thinking in our organisations, institutions and people, so that we are all prepared to solve the great challenges that we face as humanity in this new era.

The world has become exponential, and you?
