► Peter Diamandis: X, why and the future
Be bold: click on our interview with Diamandis

The super-optimistic Peter Diamandis (AKA “Pete in Space”) has hope in abundance.

As Executive Chairman of both the Silicon Valley institution Singularity University and XPRIZE – the world’s leading designer of rapidly growing technologies and incentive competitions – Diamandis has dedicated his life to addressing humanity’s grand challenges. Throw in an asteroid mining company and a company extending the healthy human lifespan and those are just some of the 17 companies he has started over the years.

We chatted to the international pioneer about the tsunami of change – from the solar revolution to the deceptive impact of blockchain – and how the democratisation of education and healthcare will change society.

“If I could change one thing it’s to get people to stop focusing on the negative, to not be scared about the future, but instead to feel empowered and given the confidence that they can in fact go and change the world… which, in fact, they can.”
