"Our goal is to help our participants not only identify exponential trends, but also see the social and economic impact globally. Then, we immerse them into the unique environment of Silicon Valley, and introduce them to some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world to give them an edge-up on creating their own transformative projects and companies." Limited to 80 highly qualified applicants from around the world, participants study and work with SU's world-class core faculty, and cutting-edge expert practitioners and thinkers who serve as guest lecturers, mentors and advisors. Throughout the summer, GSP participants are challenged with designing 10?+ Team Projects, with the mission of creating innovations that positively impact the lives of a billion people within a decade.

Now in its fifth year, Singularity University's GSP alum now number 280 from 70 countries, creating a powerful global network of newly emerging innovators and entrepreneurs. SU is also viewed as an important springboard for its participants to create their own companies in the areas of medicine and neuroscience, biotech and bioinformatics, artificial intelligence and robotics, energy and environment, and networks and computing. Through SU Labs, initiated in 2011, SU is serving as an important incubator in startups aligned with SU's mission. To date, 26 companies have been formed by SU alum. Many of these companies have been successful in acquiring funding from angel and venture capital investors, and have received grants and awards from governments and foundations.

More than two-thirds of all GSP participants have received full or partial scholarships. For the 2013 GSP, SU has initiated eight new full scholarship offerings: two for outstanding women, and three each for exceptional applicants from Africa and Asia. These new offerings are in addition to the 20 full scholarships provided to the winners of SU's Global Impact Competitions. SU now has 70 global ambassadors conducting competitions worldwide, with the support of local partners.

Featured Whitepapers

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
