We're a fiercely passionate community of entrepreneurs leveraging rapidly accelerating technologies to create a brighter future.

Join us in fostering innovation, driving impact and funding the future.

Singularity University (SU) Singularity University is a benefit corporation headquartered at NASA's research campus in Silicon Valley.

The SU Labs Startup Accelerator is designed from the ground up for startups developing exponential technologies such as synthetic biology, artificial intelligence, robotics or nanotech, to address humanity's grand challenges: education, energy, environment, food, health, poverty, security, space and water.

The SU Labs Startup Accelerator Seed Fund invests exclusively into startups offered a spot in the highly competitive SU Labs Startup Accelerator. The Fund, which is run and operated by Bridge 37, a partner of Singularity University and an investor into the Singularity Education Group, invests $100,000 in the form of a convertible note with the stated purpose of investing into every startup selected to join the SU Labs Startup Accelerator.


Dr. Peter H. Diamandis, Founder and Chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation and International Space University (ISU), and Ray Kurzweil, noted futurist, author and director of Engineering at Google, founded Singularity University in 2008 with a mission to educate, inspire and empower leaders applying exponential technologies to address the world's most intractable problems. Singularity University has educated thousands of leaders globally who went on to found hundreds of highly successful startups building the world of tomorrow.


SU Labs is a worldwide community of startups, corporate innovation teams, expert faculty and strategic partners that work together to harness the potential of exponential technologies to build companies which drive lasting change in the world. Powered by the international SU network, SU Labs helps startup teams and large corporate organizations to collectively impact billions of lives through business solutions using emerging technology.



The SU Labs Startup Accelerator selects 10-15 exceptional startups leveraging exponential technology to partake in a carefully crafted 10-week program occurring in the spring and fall of each year.

Selection is based off the following baseline requirements:

  1. Startups must have a proof-of-concept/prototype of an exponential technology and address a large, unfulfilled market opportunity
  2. The team, of at least 2, must aim to address a global grand challenge through a scalable solution
  3. The parent entity must be incorporated in the US by the start of the 10-week program

All SU Startup Lab Companies become part of the SU Companies program where we provide ongoing support to ensure continued growth.



Current SU Lab portfolio companies have raised more than $150M in subsequent funding

I came to SU to learn about the future with the people who know more about it than anyone else on the planet. Then, I went back to my team in Colorado to build that future. This is the power of the SU Labs.
