About Reinvent


Reinvent is a new kind of media company trying to help solve the big challenges of our time and find better ways forward. We do this by bringing together some of the smartest, most innovative, most knowledgeable people from many fields into deep conversations about how to reinvent our world.

We open up these conversations from our physical events, virtual roundtables and deep dive interviews to sophisticated audiences who want to follow the nuanced discussion of complex issues and better understand what’s possible in the near future. We distill the best insights and ideas from these long-form videos and podcasts into shorter articles and social media that can be more widely shared.

Reinvent is based in the Mission District in San Francisco and we partner with organizations that share an interest in connecting up a top-tier network of innovators and intellectuals, entrepreneurs and creative thinkers focused on overcoming a complex challenge. We assemble an “A team” able to figure out better ways forward in a field or industry, for America or the world.

The world is going through an historic transformation that requires almost all systems, strategies and policies to be fundamentally reinvented for the very new realities of the 21st century. We believe it’s now possible to build next-generation systems that could work much better for everyone over the long term.

Our mission is to do our part to reinvent a better way forward and help others make the transition to the high-tech, global, more sustainable era to come.


Our website is designed to mirror what our company primarily does: create stories featuring top innovators in videoed conversations from in-depth series.

Stories: Our stories are geared towards a more general audience interested in the near future and are the quickest and easiest way to connect to our work. The stories section on this website showcases the latest stories from our our Reinvent publication in Medium. The stories themselves pick up on the best insights and ideas to emerge from our more in-depth conversations and often stick to themes from our current projects, or what we call series.

Innovators: We’ve amassed an extraordinary group of top-tier, high-caliber individuals to participate in our conversations over more than five years. We consistently draw a diverse mix of entrepreneurs, technologists, scientists, professors, venture capitalists, authors, artists, filmmakers, political activists, government officials, and journalists who are at the forefront of their respective fields. Check out our featured innovators page or explore profiles of the more than 500 remarkable people who make up our network.

Conversations: These in-depth conversations take many forms, from physical events with up to 150 people, to virtual roundtables featuring up to a half dozen participants, to one-on-one interviews.  All of them can be viewed in their entirety as long-form videos, or enjoyed as audio podcasts for those who want to listen on the go. These conversations are designed for a sophisticated audience who want to follow nuanced discussions of complex issues and more fully understand what’s coming next.

Series: Each series consists of multiple conversations organized around an overarching topic or key question. These projects catalyze a specialized network of innovators with complementary expertise who can explore many aspects of a challenge over time and work on finding better ways forward.
