  • 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 American Foreign Policy

    Should we fundamentally reorient how America relates to the rest of the world in an era when most of our biggest challenges are global in nature and planetary in scale ? The Reinvent Foreign Policy Series will ask the questions that frequently don’t get asked among American policymakers and try to propose new kinds of solutions. It will begin with no preconceptions, except that America has made a lot of costly mistakes and needs to learn how to do better.

  • 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.
