  • The Future of Work

    The global economy is undergoing an unprecedented transformation, driven by new technologies and increasing globalization. Roughly one-third of Americans are now working independently—from well-paid contract workers to temp workers struggling to make ends meet—and the numbers are expected to climb in the coming decade, as artificial intelligence and advanced robotics disrupt more and more industries. What can be done now to ensure all independent workers thrive in the years ahead?

  • The Future of Sharing

    The Future of Sharing project sets out to answer the key question: How can we make the sharing economy work for everyone? We hold deep conversations with a wide range of thought leaders who understand the sharing economy and its potential, as well as people who run and understand cities. We don’t shy from looking hard at the challenges in transitioning to this new system, but we mostly focus on finding win-win solutions that will make better cities. We then take the insights from the conversations and make media that can spread the best ideas.

  • What’s Now: San Francisco

    What’s Now: San Francisco is a monthly conversation stimulated by a local thought leader about the most important innovations emerging in the San Francisco Bay Area right now. Once a month, Reinvent and Capgemini will gather a diverse group of innovators at the new Applied Innovation Exchange in SOMA for an evening of discussion and networking, along with good food and drinks.

  • Reinvent the Humanities to Change the World

    Georgetown’s Designing the Future(s) of the University Initiative, in collaboration with the new media startup Reinvent, is developing a series of high profile conversations that open up this discussion beyond academia. Last year, we asked leading scholars, innovators in the private sector, and working practitioners of the humanities to share their thoughts on the role the humanities can play in creating a sustainable and interconnected future. This March, we will be conducting a series of interviews at Georgetown, addressing six key topics related to the future of the humanities.
