TORONTO, April 15, 2019 /CNW/ - Intersect, the innovation firm that works with enterprises to deliver exceptional experiences for their customers and stakeholders by focusing on creating momentum through design thinking, engineering agility, and digital product development, is proud to announce that they have extended their partnership with SingularityU Canada. As the partnership enters its second year, Intersect will be sponsoring the 2019 SingularityU Canada Summit, April 23 and 24 in Edmonton, Alberta.
"SingularityU is devoted to reinforcing Canada's role as a tech innovator," said Paul Crowe, Senior Leader of Intersect. "While our two organizations may seem different on the surface, we actually have very similar goals. We both want to help people and brands understand the possibilities and problems that the future may hold, then create innovative solutions that will take them there while creating a better world for everyone around them. I'm very much looking forward to seeing what great ideas and new connections come out of this event."
Singularity University was founded in 2008 by renowned thinkers Ray Kurzwell and Peter Diamandis and has become a global initiative that brings together some of the worlds best minds and business leaders to learn and create using exponential technologies to tackle the world's biggest challenges and build an abundant future for all. In 2017, SingularityU Canada was started to help ensure that Canada plays a global role in shaping the way we all live and work. The upcoming Summit will aim to give a deeper understanding of how exponential technology will benefit nearly every aspect of our daily lives and how Canada can contribute to the effort and brings together senior leaders in business, government, and non-profits, along with scientists, educators, and other leaders for a three and a half day program to discuss and explore ways that they can work to shape Canada's future.
Intersect will bring their extensive knowledge and experience in product strategy, rapid prototyping, design, engineering, and more to the table as they continue to grow their partnership with SingularityU Canada.
"We hope to bring our expertise in moving exponential ideas and solutions forward to the themes being discussed at the Summit," said Paul Crowe.
