As more people reject not just the ideas of others but their humanity as well, is there a language that can bring people together?
The idea for Connects was conceived after 9/11, when logical debate became difficult. Issues require conversation, and the media was not facilitating it. Do not get us wrong; we are not interested in pointless confrontation, but rather considering alternative points of views on subjects that matter.
Throughout our travels, we come across amazing people. We are always searching the globe for insight and inspiration, and have had transformative experiences in places such as Singularity University. Our community should benefit from our new insights in more ways than just smarter investments.
At our inception in 2004, we created Connects - a speaker series to help inspire and motivate each of you to become increasingly involved in social issues that affect our world. A connection is the foundation of human existence; Connects is just one way that we unite our community, locally and globally.
