Nov 23 16
Are you looking to impact the world? Leave behind a legacy and really do big things?

Having now read his books and met the man behind an enormously impressive carrera I must say it really made my small challenges in business and in life seem trivial and made me look to step things up in a huge way.

X Prize Foundation - $10 million prizes and challenges for teams who solves some of worlds biggest problems

Singularity University - "educate, inspire and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges."
