Established in 2009, the RADICAL IDEAS GROUP (RIG) is a future-focused think tank and strategic commercialization consulting firm.
For the past 30 years we have been researching, analyzing and accurately forecasting outcomes in practically every field of human endeavor.
Our deep insight and understanding of the interconnectedness of things means we often see opportunities long before they materialise.
Everyone wants ideas and not just any ideas, but radical ones - the kind that cut through the noise with laser beam precision and etch an indelible mark into the minds of those who experience them.
To stay ahead of the curve we listen to, observe and communicate with all kinds of people. From the work-at-home-mom to the multinational corporation struggling to remain relevant in a dynamically shifting landscape.
Our role is to help you devise the right idea, for the right audience, at the right time. Whether it be a new consumer product, revolutionary world-changing technology or innovative media campaign.
We're intuitive enough to be brought in at any point or provide the inspiration for a brand new idea and then help drive it through to total global adoption.
Our mission is to make life on this planet better for all...one radical, world changing idea at a time!
We are inspired, highly creative and intelligent lateral thinkers, designers and creators whose senses are in tune with the pulse of tomorrow.
Blink and you'll miss it!
Change is occuring at an ever accelerating pace and it's only going to get faster.
Things once considered permanent or fixed are shifting before our very eyes and perception is the new reality!
Technological advances in practically every field of endeavor are affecting everyone, everywhere.
Wake up tomorrow and the chances that something new will have emerged while you were sleeping, are highly probable.
Some believe it's due to an impending singularity * - a moment in time when we'll all know and understand the same thing, at the very same instant! There's even the possibility that a much anticipated 'globally connected mindset' is forming!
Whatever the case, our mission is to help clients navigate the future and succeed during a period of unprecedented technological growth and massive change.
"The companies that are surprised by the future
will be those that failed to imagine it."
* We have a different view on what a Singularity may be but the theory provided by inventor and futurist,Ray Kurzweil, is the most popular. Kurzweil describes his law of accelerating returns which predicts an exponential increase in technologies like computers, genetics, nanotechnology, robotics and artificial intelligence.
He says this will lead to a technological singularity in the year 2045, a point where progress is so rapid it outstrips humans' ability to comprehend it. Irreversibly transformed, people will augment their minds and bodies with genetic alterations, nanotechnology, and artificial intelligence.
Once the Singularity has been reached, Kurzweil predicts machine intelligence will be billions of times more powerful than all human intelligence combined. Afterwards, Kurzweil says, intelligence will radiate outward from the planet until it saturates the universe.
