What is Futurebase?

Futurebase is a platform to discover, learn and discuss the future, backed by data and trends.

We believe that the most compelling ideas about the future don't have to come from experts as they can be locked into traditional thinking and therefore more restricted in their views.

What makes someone a futurist?

Simply put, anyone who takes an interest in thinking about their own future or the future of a business can be considered a futurist.

Futurists study the future, using factual information and current trends they make projections and decisions about the future.
