Why We Need to Take Moonshots to Solve Our Greatest Challenges

About this webinar

Moonshots: How Solving Humanity’s Greatest Challenges Starts with Having a Bold Vision of the Future

Have you ever come up with an idea that was too bold to be pursued, but had the potential of improving billions of lives across the planet?

If yes, you’re already familiar with the idea of moonshots.

While traditional business ideas focus on delivering value through existing channels, moonshots open up entirely new arenas or industries that didn’t even exist before.

Over the past few years, we have heard a great deal about moonshots--whether it is Joe Biden’s Cancer Moonshot or Alphabet (Google’s) Moonshot Factory.  

What exactly is a moonshot? Why is the tech-industry so obsessed with it? And is it really possible for anyone to launch a moonshot?

Join Darlene Damm, as she talks about the importance of moonshots, and how we’re close to a future, where exponential technologies can bridge the gap between desirability and feasibility.

In this webcast, you will:

  • Understand how to outline moonshot ideas

  • Explore how exponential technologies can boost the impact, affordability and turnaround time of moonshot ideas

  • Learn how to create a moonshot canvas, and evaluate viable business models

  • Get inspired to ideate, prototype and launch your own moonshot ideas
