Figuring out the future, together.

The year 2025, it turns out, is the year many experts predict may be a tipping point that ushers in a new era of innovation for our world. Within approximately 10 years, the most disruptive emerging technologies of our modern era, now in their infancy, will be “ready for prime time” and will change society, and how we define ourselves, in unimaginable ways. Are we ready for this seismic shift that will happen in the blink of an eye? Are we aware of (and prepared for) the challenges and opportunities that are ahead?

Tech 2025 (launched in 2017) is a learning platform and innovation community for professionals and organizations to learn about (and prepare for) the accelerating global disruption that will happen over the next 5 years, due to emerging technologies like AI, Machine Learning, VR/AR/XR, Driverless Vehicles, Robot Automation, 3D Printing, Biotech, Space Tech, Drones, Internet of Things, Blockchain, and Sustainable Technologies. In addition to educating professionals about these technologies that are evolving quicker than we can fully understand them, we facilitate engaging live events like think tanks, webinars, workshops and tech tours on the impact of these technologies on global business and the future of work based on the latest news, trends, and research presented by industry thought-leaders and rising talent. And we provide innovative solutions for companies that need to upskill a diverse workforce and advisory on deploying technologies and campaigns. Since our launch, we’ve produced over 100 events that have informed and connected thousands of professionals across industries. Tech 2025 is for anyone who wants to understand how to effectively implement emerging technologies, how to prepare for the near-future, and how to actively participate in developing innovative solutions that will carry us into the NEW, post-pandemic future.

the technological future, together!

New Employee Engagement Programs

In these pandemic times, the epic challenges businesses face today include remote workforce continuity and culture, technology upskilling and reskilling, and keeping up with the pace of innovation (which has increased exponentially due to the pandemic, shocking even the most well-prepared organizations). But there is another crippling crisis companies face, bubbling beneath the surface of every interaction and initiative — employees who feel unprepared for (and often overwhelmed by) the post-pandemic, technological future. 

We’re excited to announce our new employee engagement programs developed to break down social distancing silos, strengthen company culture, and teach employees about emerging technologies through real-world problem-solving. Program topics include:  biotech, simulation tech, climate tech, automation, 2025 forecasts and jobs of the future. We’re excited to bring the power of our unique engagement to the remote workforce!
