How do you start? Based in Silicon Valley and drawing on Stanford's legacy for educating world-changing innovators, inventors, and thinkers, foresight does not mean futuring or trend finding. Instead design foresight is about knowing where to go, about having a view of the future: a vision of knowing what to build and why. Our mission is to create leaders and teams who imagine and build with foresight across multiple innovation horizons. We invite you to join our foresight community, support and learn from our research activities, practice the methods and tools taught in our classes, and then apply your ideas and energy into world-changing impact.
