About SingularityU Nordic

What Is SU Nordic?

SingularityU Nordic is a part of Singularity University (“SU”) - a global learning and innovation community using exponential technologies to tackle the world’s biggest challenges and build an abundant future for all.

As a catalyst for change, we run education, innovation, and impact programs that help others leverage rapidly accelerating technologies—including artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, blockchain, and digital biology—in innovative ways to unlock solutions that can positively impact millions, if not, billions of lives.

“SingularityU Nordic integrates the best of Silicon Valley with the strengths of Scandinavia. I have no doubt that by leveraging the collective brainpower, entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to the Global Grand Challenges the people in our community will positively impact the world in whole new ways.”

—Laila Pawlak
CEO, SingularityU Nordic

We Strive for Impact

Environmental Commitment

Our goal is to protect the environment by reducing and recycling waste, using less energy and water, minimizing the use of chemicals, prioritizing local environmentally and socially responsible suppliers and inspiring others to commit to environmental protection.

Community Empowerment

We support the development of local communities and the professional growth of young people by co-creating educational programs and trainings together with local organizations.

We Are a B Corp!

SingularityU Nordic is one of the very first companies in the Nordics to file for Benefit Corporation status. And we’re committed to the core mission behind the B Corp movement: using business as a force for good and defining success both in terms of revenue and social impact. In fact, we place a premium on igniting a massive transformative purpose over our bottom line. We’re continuing to find new and exciting ways to monitor, evaluate, and report on our commitment to creating positive impact in the world, and seek to be a model for others on their journey to creating measurable impact. 

As we continue to accelerate our journey toward solving humanity’s grand challenges, we rely on the B Labs assessment tool and certification to help us track and measure the positive impact we’re creating in the world.
