Futurized Sponsor

If you feel that being associated with the Futurized brand is of value to your company, feel free to reach out. The way a value-based podcast sponsorship works is that we negotiate a set rate per episode as well as the exact way your brand will be mentioned on the air and on the Futurized website. We will consider brands that have a demonstrably positive contribution to the future. Each ad is personalized and is read by the host personally, unless otherwise agreed.


Health Tech: Rebooting Society's Software, Hardware and Mindset

Global healthcare will change drastically in the next decade due to key technologies, social dynamics, and systemic shifts that are already in motion. However, shaping the future requires being aware of the opportunities and able to capitalize on them to one’s family and the community’s benefit. Health tech can be a part of the solution, but tracking the right startups and influencers takes know-how.


Future Tech: How to Capture Value from Disruptive Industry Trends

Future Tech explains how the four forces of technology, policy, business models and social dynamics work together to create industry disruption and how this understanding can help to predict what is coming next.


Futurized Partner

Partnerships are deep relationships in which each party provides a specific component that they are uniquely suited to provide. For example, the Atlantic Council's Geotech Center is a Futurized partner, because they have a lot of affiliated thought leaders that are a near perfect match for Futurized. Our host is also a non-Resident Senior Fellow with the same organization and wants to contribute to their cause. Partnerships are usually monetized, but not always. It will depend on the benefits provided by each party and the workload involved. We will consider podcast guesting agencies as partners only in exceptional cases where there is a history of stellar guest intros. Moreover, it will not mean you can get any proposed guest on the show automatically.

Pandemic Aftermath: How Coronavirus Changes Global Society

We are in the pandemic now, but what happens next? The book offers five ways to look at the coming future, crafted as scenarios, based on the author's study of the forces of disruption that brought on the pandemic. It offers suggestions to remedy its consequences, or even enable segments of society to thrive on it. The first portion of the book is non-fiction. The second portion is a scenario-based novel, the book charts new territory by interweaving the grim reality of 2020 with a first-person exploration of the next decade as if we were already in it.


Disruption Games: How to Thrive on Serial Failure

Common wisdom says that success breeds success, and indeed this is how most VCs pick startups, businesses select talent, and singles search for dates. In contrast, the evidence from science to startups shows that only repeated failure breeds success.


Leadership from Below: How the Internet Generation Redefines the Workplace

Leadership From Below explains how the workplace is being changed by ideas from Asia, Scandinavia, and the socially-networked internet. All managers - but especially the growing group of de facto managers - will take away usable leadership skills.


Pod guest swap

Futurized is fortunate enough to receive many more guest requests than we can process, let alone put on the air. In order to provide some structure to the madness, we have put in place a pod guest swap program. In other words, if you have a media venue willing to host a discussion with our host, Trond Undheim, we will host your host as our guest. This solution is most appropriate between podcasters but could also work for agencies in exceptional cases. It is one way among many for us to prioritize guests. Each request will of course be subject to the same rigorous evaluation for fit and exceptional value of the content provided.
