Democratization of innovation
Turning threats into opportunities
The Swiss Institute for Disruptive Innovation (SIDI) is an organization founded in 2015 by a group of researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, and innovators. SIDI identifies, studies, and explores opportunities and risks of upcoming disruptive innovations to thoroughly guide enterprises, institutions, and public administrations to unleash their growth potential.
Our institute aims to turn future threats into opportunities by analyzing emerging trends and technologies with the potential to disrupt existing processes and produce a meaningful change in economic and social systems.
We believe that in an ever-changing world, it is essential to think in terms of systems. Democratizing access to innovation becomes the fundamental driver to allow the world to grow while facing the challenges of the future.
The role of technology
A technology is rarely inherently disruptive. However, sometimes it just happens, and in recent years the frequency with which technologies with disruptive potential emerge has accelerated exponentially.
We focus on technologies -and trends- that contain the seed of change, the potential to trigger the process of global disruption.
A holistic vision
We believe in a future defined by the convergence of technologies but governed by humanity. The contamination of know-how and the spread of knowledge will trigger massive growth. We are about to witness a holistic transformation of how we interact with economic, social, and relational systems.
Organizations will reassure people of their fears and help them realize their dreams. But, of course, technological advancement carries risks.
There is no good technology or bad technology; opportunities and threats are two sides of the same coin. It is up to us to transform this enormous potential into something positive.
And the only way not to suffer change is to become agents of change.
