Subscribed: 0Played: 1


The Sarasota Institute is a 21st Century Think Tank. We are interested in leading the questioning and thinking on 10 major topics that will largely shape the United States and the world in this century. These 10 topics are: technology, global policy, natural resources, marketing and media, intelligence, health care, education, democracy, climate change and capitalism. We are not political. We were co-founded by futurist David Houle, marketing guru Philip Kotler, and financial futurist Jason Voss in 2017. We are a non-profit corporation. Look into the future with us!
