A curated, intimate discussion with thought leaders designed to vet, debate, and ultimately spark ideas that will set the course for our collective technological future.

The Futurecast Technology Innovation Series

The Futurecast Technology Innovation Series is a series of discussion-based events that bring together leaders in technology, government, business and beyond. Featuring guests like Sebastian Thrun, Gavin Newsom, and Steve Case, the discussions revolve around how technology is shaping our world. Each event focuses on a single topic, such as wearables, the use of technology in government, or online education resources. Our attendees debate and challenge one another to vet current solutions and propose new ones to move our collective technology future forward.

What makes Futurecast unique?

Futurecast is a curated, intimate discussion with thought leaders designed to vet, debate, and ultimately spark ideas that will set the course for our collective technology future. To date, more than 600 industry leaders and visionaries have attended Futurecast. Attendees include entrepreneurs, government officials, investors, academics, authors and media. We film the sessions, and make the content available on various media sites.

Outcomes of Futurecast

The goal of Futurecast is to move the conversation forward on a specific topic via a salon-type discussion, rather than one-way sharing. We aim to engage partners in the space with the best possible outcome being a follow-up project or partnership between the Foundry and participating organizations.
