Impact.tech Seminars

Our deep-dive seminars are designed to give a quick overview of the state of science, costs of scaling, commercialization paths, opportunities, and players already in the field (institutions, startups, investors & big cos). Each seminar lasts 3 hours and is invite-only. We optimize for a group of 15-20 individuals with practical, near-term interest in the field. We charge $85 which goes towards the costs of the seminar. We offer discounts for those unable to pay the fee. Anyone can apply through forms linked below.

"THE SCIENCE OF AGING" BY MARTIN Borch Jensen

You will leave the seminar knowing:
What is aging? Is aging treatable? What are the major biological processes that make up aging? What are the major breakthroughs in anti-aging science?
And, most importantly, how you can get involved in anti-aging as an entrepreneur or investor.

Our first seminar took place in July 2017, we are gathering a group for the next one. Tell us if you are interested in attending Cohort 2 using this form.

"THE Arrival OF QUANTUM COMPUTING"

The seminar will be taught by Will Zeng, a quantum theorist and Head of Quantum Cloud Services at Rigetti Computing, one of the leading quantum computing companies in the world. The seminar will take place on April 19th 2018, between 5pm - 7:30pm in San Francisco. You will leave the seminar knowing: What is quantum physics and what is quantum computing?  Why are quantum computers (QC) so special compared to regular computers? What are the best applications of QC? What is quantum supremacy? What timelines can we expect for QC to fully come to market? What are the major directions in QC at the moment? What are the recent breakthroughs in the field? Who are the main actors in academia and industry working on QC? Who are some of the bigger players in the quantum computing space right now? What are the biggest unexplored or underexplored opportunities in QC? How you can get involved in QC as an entrepreneur or investor? Apply here, space is limited!
