— about the event —

Exponential Medicine is a unique and intensive 4 day experience that gathers world class faculty, innovators and organizations from across the bio-medical and technology spectrum — to explore and leverage the convergence of fast moving tech in the re-invention of health and medicine.

Our home in San Diego, California at the iconic Hotel del Coronado is the magic x-factor in building connections and catalyzing deep conversation among faculty and participants. We make full use of one of America’s most scenic resorts — its history complements the future focus of Exponential Medicine.

From talks given in a custom designed theater with multiple configurations for listening and idea generation, to our hands-on tech lab, beach-side morning yoga, dinners, and bonfires Exponential Medicine is a high energy, bold re-design of a medical conference.

Designed for the clinicians, innovators, investors, executives, and makers driving progress in smart ways, Exponential Medicine gathers world-class faculty, organizations, and start-ups from across the bio-medical and tech spectrum.

welcome letter | from Daniel Kraft MD

Welcome to Exponential Medicine!

On behalf of the Singularity University team, and the incredible faculty who have come together for Exponential Medicine, I’m thrilled and grateful to have you join us.

Whether you’re a clinician, patient, technologist — from pharma, payor, medical device, or investor worlds — I appreciate the diverse spirit of innovation + collaboration you bring to the event. Our audience has vast, varied experience and ideas. Help us re-shape the future of health care + medicine.

The event is filled with cross-disciplinary exploration, and insights into how we can apply new knowledge, tech and mind-sets to positively impact medicine across our planet.

We invite you to dive-in: meeting, mixing, collaborating, improvising with each other — discovering ways to integrate new approaches.

Visit our Innovation Lab where you can play, improvise, imagine. Share your projects and opinions at the Gadget Bar, work-shops, and on the beach. Form new friendships, collaborations and endeavors.

Best wishes,
Daniel Kraft MD
