Event Details

If you’re excited by technology’s potential to elevate the human experience and solve global problems from the inside out, this is your conference.  Our focus is on getting technology that supports mental and emotional wellbeing out to the world.  From leading neuroscientists to ground-breaking start-ups, this is your community.  


What if technology did more than just make us more productive?  What if technology supported our wellbeing too?  What would the world look like then?


For the last few years, a global community has been developing to explore this, and bring it into reality…and is about to meet in person for the first time. Join us and add your voice to this growing and incredibly important community.


Transformative Technology is science-based hardware and software that produces reliable and positive change in psychological well-being. This includes developmental-level shifts and significant changes in conscious experience.


The conference will be a crossroads of the interested public, scientists, makers, investors, researchers, inventors, entrepreneurs, public policy makers, and industry veterans and YOU.

  • Enjoy informative speakers on timely topics related to the technology innovation for exploration of consciousness


  • Network over lunch and cocktail parties with leading experts from diverse disciplines, such as tech, investing, consciousness, neuroscience, physics, engineering and more


  • Meet leading industry experts with strategic insights and members of the community


  • Discover fascinating startups and investment opportunities in this emerging market 


  • Uncover opportunities for new tools such as software, mobiles, apps, wearables, music, audio, devices, and measurement and tracking of quantified self


  • Learn how Transformative Technologies provide actionable data from monitoring our physical and psychological processes, and use this data to improve our lives

Whatever your focus, this event will help you find even more to move ahead with, and in new ways you probably can't even imagine right now.


We've designed it to be a synergistic and community-based environment that will help get you there. 


The event will also include a demo area that allows you to try out the most cutting edge stuff out there.


We hope you'll come, because I believe that you have an important voice to contribute. 


There is so much to explore, but often 'traditional' methods such as meditation get all the attention, while emerging technological ones do not.


It's easy to understand this bias, but also critical to keep in mind that in their day these now 'traditional' methods were the absolute cutting edge of technology.


This is a rare opportunity see what is at the leading edge of transformation today, so that you can take maximum advantage of it.

We will also be running a mini-summit during the first part of Friday:

The conference will begin with a mini-summit which aims to explore and establish the core questions defining this space.


This will be an open and collaborative process. Working in small groups, we will explore four core topics: definitions, outcomes, methods, and ethics. The goal will be a working document defining 3-5 core questions for each of these topic areas. These questions will act as a means of defining the territory of Transformative Technology, which recognizing that there is still much to learn.

Transformative Technology Lab

Our mission is to permanently move a billion people into a state of wellbeing and flourishing by 2030.


We are a global community of entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors building tech for mental health, emotional wellbeing, and human flourishing. We sit at the intersection of neuroscience, psychology, tech, entrepreneurship, and innovation. We leverage exponential technologies like AI, AR/VR/XR, networks and sensors, biotech, neurofeedback, robotics and more to build tech to enable human wellbeing at scale.


We start with this premise – the Future of Work, Society, and Tech DEPENDS on the State of the Human Mind. This question – How do we enable every human to develop their full potential? And this belief -- together, we can create an unprecedented era of human flourishing.


We can take the tech that has taxed our thinking and relationships and use it instead to transform our hearts and minds. We can have greater clarity, joy and connection -- and ultimately more possibility for all of humanity.


We must have flourishing because we cannot solve our other problems without having healthy human minds. Psychological wellbeing was once considered a luxury – something you get at the end of a stressful and fear-filled life. But now we need flourishing – to work, to live, to thrive. This is why we need to build the tech that we really, actually, need. The tech that helps us know ourselves better than algorithms, that helps us connect to ourselves and one another. The tech that supports our hearts and minds. Remember: We can design tech to serve us, to prioritize human contact and connection.
