About Reinvent

Reinvent is a company that helps others understand what’s possible in the near future and how we can find new ways forward. We drive conversations about what’s coming within the next 10 years and how we can more fundamentally reinvent better strategies and systems to deal with these new realities.

We seek out world-class innovators from diverse fields who deeply understand new technologies and have big ideas about how to solve many of the challenges of our time. We carry out conversations with these remarkable people and gather networks of innovators in physical and virtual events to build off the ideas that emerge. These complex conversations are captured through long-form video that can be shared with sophisticated audiences.

The company was founded by Peter Leyden as a startup in 2012 to take advantage of the early arrival of interactive group video. Reinvent pioneered the use of this new medium to more efficiently connect up innovators across America and open up their conversations to others in ways that could not be done in physical meetings. By 2016 the company expanded into holding these conversations in physical events but then thoroughly covering them through video live-streaming to spread the ideas.

We partner with companies and organizations that want to help harness the capabilities of diverse networks of innovators to better understand what’s coming next and find new ways forward. We have worked over the years with a range of companies, foundations, universities and non-profits that want to drive more innovation and change the world for the better.

Our core team and network of innovators is based in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley, ground zero for figuring out a new way forward for California, as well as for America and the world.

Our website is designed to mirror what our company primarily does: engage top innovators in videoed conversations as part of in-depth series.

Innovators: We’ve amassed an extraordinary group of top-tier individuals to participate in our conversations since we began in 2012. 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 600 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, and some enjoyed as audio podcasts. 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 and how they might prepare.

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 together on finding better ways forward.
