Ari Popper is the Founder and CEO of SciFutures, a foresight and innovation house that uses sci-fi prototyping to help their clients create meaningful change in the Exponential Age. SciFutures works in a wide variety of industries with Fortune 500 clients such Visa, Hershey, Ford, Clorox, Lowe’s and VMWare.

Ari has over 20 years’ experience as a marketing, consumer research, and innovation executive. He is a passionate sci-fi fan and amateur sci-fi writer who was inspired to start SciFutures during a creative sci-fi writing class at UCLA. He says that: “Science Fiction is a powerful tool because it helps businesses understand the human potential of emerging technologies in order to develop human-centered strategies that the whole organization can understand and be inspired to rally behind. This provides a significant competitive advantage.”
