Memberships is a hub of innovation-focused research. The Memberships tier presents opportunities for innovators and trailblazing professionals to add to the conversation, support open-access (Quick Insights) content, and propose important research questions.

Membership-backed content focuses on areas of innovation that produce societal or industrywide benefits. We encourage new members with pertinent academic or professional credentials who believe in both narrow domain expertise and interdisciplinary collaborations. In other words, these dynamic groups are for people who want to democratize tech knowledge and follow through on technology’s promise to change the world. Communities are mobilized through two primary (sometimes overlapping) groups, listed below. Upon registration, we’ll reach out to clarify your bandwidth for engagement/potential areas of contribution. You’ll be empowered with options to:

  • vote on our editorial direction
  • transform the domain in which you operate
  • have your work considered for thought leadership opportunities

Deep Tech Membership

In a world of fleeting trends, the transformative power of Deep Tech is often overlooked. The problems that truly matter – the hard engineering problems, the complex endeavors, the ones that block global progress – are waiting to be solved. Whether you’re a researcher refining scientific understanding, an engineer translating theoretical concepts into practical applications, or an executive aligning this R&D with growth strategies, this community is being built to fuel and fast-track you. Step into an arena of intellectual fusion where the exchange of ideas and the courage to build risky, long-term projects lead to breakthrough innovations and legitimate digital transformations.

Examples of this initiative can be found in the “Healthcare Tech Trends,” “NewSpace Economy,” and “Robotics Trends” whitepapers.

The road to a brighter, more advanced society is not a path of least resistance. By joining the Deep Tech Membership, you’re making a statement – that you choose substance over surface, innovation over imitation, and potential over precedent.

Social Innovations/ESG Membership

Imagine a world where social enterprises thrive and out-compete those sticking with the old model or trying to get by on greenwashing. A world where progress is measured not only by profits generated, but by equitable access to financing, lives improved, ecosystems protected, and injustices rectified. This is the world we are striving to create. Sustainability, ethical governance, and social welfare aren’t meant to be buzzwords – they are imperatives, the new standards for the organizations of the future.

An example of this initiative can be found in “The Virtual Verdict: Evolution of Legal Tech in 2023.”

Join other advocates in a shared mission to prioritize these principles, channeling inspiration into concrete projects and change initiatives.
