Joe Roberts is widely known as a futurist, entrepreneur, venture capitalist, fundraiser, and host of an upcoming podcast. Joe has founded two startups, the DC Futurist Society, and has been published on issues ranging from fundraising strategies to foreign affairs. As a futurist, Joe’s focus is on the future of technology and how it will affect humanity in the years to come. His soon to be released podcast explores the hard and soft science of technology, and digs deep into the affects it will have on capital markets, the daily lives of people, and how government will have to react. Joe believes the future of technology is more than just what we will create, but how we will react sociologically and politically. The DC Futurist Society, founded by Joe in 2017, is the premier organization in the DC metro area for the exchange of ideas about the future and hosts meet ups, panel discussions, and expert speakers on the future of technology and our world. Best known for his fundraising, Joe has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for non-profit causes and by connecting startups to the capital they need to make the future a reality.
