Imag­ine a videogame cleared by the FDA to treat ADHD, depres­sion, or sub­stance abuse — how will doc­tors pre­scribe it, patients access it, and insur­ers pay for it?

Imag­ine a free “annu­al brain check-up” — what may it look like, and how can it lead into per­son­al­ized inter­ven­tions to improve func­tion and prevent/ delay/ treat cog­ni­tive decline and Alzheimer’s Dis­ease?

Imag­ine being respon­si­ble for the health & well­ness of a mil­lion peo­ple — how will you edu­cate them to nav­i­gate most-like­ly-to-help inter­ven­tions, such as breathing/ exercise/ meditation/ apps/ biofeedback/ tDCS to reg­u­late stress?

Imag­ine invest­ing $100 mil­lion in star­tups devel­op­ing non­in­va­sive, dig­i­tal neu­rotech­nolo­gies — where, and how, will you find great oppor­tu­ni­ties to gen­er­ate finan­cial and social returns?


The 2018 Sharp­Brains Vir­tu­al Sum­mit (Decem­ber 4–6th, 2018)  will fea­ture over forty of the world’s top experts, inno­va­tors and investors aim­ing to improve brain health and per­for­mance for all in light of grow­ing neu­ro­science and dig­i­tal tech.
