What is Abundance360?

Abundance360 is Singularity University's highest-level program run by Singularity Founder Peter H. Diamandis, MD. This year-round leadership program is designed for founders, executives, and investors who are ready to create meaningful impact and leave a legacy. It's 360 Members & 60 Patron Members from around the globe consist of Entrepreneurs, Investors & CEOs running $10M - $10B companies.

Origin of Abundance360’s 25-year Journey

In 2013, after the publication of Peter’s New York Times Bestselling books Abundance and BOLD, Peter was at Joe Polish’s Genius Network, to speak about his newest program (Abundance360) to a group of entrepreneurs and marketers.

Dan Sullivan, Co-founder of Strategic Coach and Peter’s personal coach, pulled him aside saying, “Peter, if you really want to make the A360 program stick, why don’t you tell the entrepreneurs in the room that you’ll be running this program for the next 25 years?”

Like so many great ideas, it instantly clicked. A360 transformed into a 25-year journey – a program taking place between 2013 and 2038, guiding members through to what Ray Kurzweil calls the “singularity.”

So, what will the world look like by 2038? Probably as different as our world today looked from the world 123 years ago in 1900. Imagine a world of ubiquitous superhuman AI, quantum computing, and brain computer interfaces connecting your mind to the cloud. Imagine a world of trillions of sensors allowing you to know anything, anytime, anywhere. A world where biological human aging is reversible and nanotechnology allows us to create microscopic machinery. Literally a future beyond our imagination.

Origin of The Singularity Group

Founding of Singularity University

In 2008, Peter Diamandis and Ray Kurzweil stood up in front of an audience of the Silicon Valley elite, the CEOs and venture capitalists creating our exponential future. Peter and Ray proposed the creation of a new University that gathered top entrepreneurs from around the planet to learn about AI, Robotics, 3D Printing, Biotech, AV/VR, and Networks and how these technologies could be used to solve the world’s biggest problems.

Larry Page, then Co-founder and President of Google stood up near the end of the first day and gave an impassioned impromptu speech supporting the Founding of Singularity and its mission:

“I now have a very simple metric I use: are you working on something that can change the world? Yes or no? The answer for 99.99999 percent of people is ‘No.’ I think we need to be training people on how to change the world. Obviously, technologies are the way to do that. That’s what we’ve seen in the past; that’s what's driven all the change.”

Today Singularity University (known as the Singularity Group) has grown into a global platform for entrepreneurs and executives. During the past 14 years, since SU’s founding, Singularity has graduated over 20,000 exponential entrepreneurs in more than 100 countries.

In 2013, Peter created Abundance360 as a year-round, leadership program for exponential entrepreneurs and leaders. A360 was designed to be SU’s highest level program led by its founder (more on A360 below).
