Ari Popper

Ari is the Founder and CEO of SciFutures, a foresight and innovation agency that uses sci fi prototyping to help their clients create meaningful change that is relevant for the Exponential Age. SciFutures works in a wide variety of industries with Fortune 500 clients such Lowe’s, Hershey, Ford, Brocade and Pepsi. Ari has over 20 years' experience as marketing, consumer research and innovation consultant. He is a passionate sci fi fan and amateur sci fi writer who was inspired to start SciFutures during a creative scifi writing class at UCLA. He says that: “Science Fiction is powerful business tool because it helps businesses understand the human potential of emerging technologies in order to develop human centered business strategies that the whole organization can understand and be inspired to rally behind. This provides a significant competitive advantage.” When Ari isn’t running SciFutures and reading sci fi, Ari is marathon training and living in the California sunshine with his wife and three pets.
