Live! From Tomorrow is a show about innovation in tech and business. Because trust in technology is at an all time low, yet we still yearn to innovate.


Last fall, Live! From Tomorrow recorded its first full season of live performances on stages at the SAP Leonardo Center (Hudson Yards) and Rise New York. Most notably, in "Live! From Tomorrow: New York City 2118," on October 19, 2018.

On May 15, 2019 LFT took to the Broadway stage to perform, "Blockchain on Broadway" which followed innovation evangelist Matt Hooper from the lower east side, at the turn of the last century, to a double date with a social media-born spybot.

Guests on the forthcoming Live! From Tomorrow podcast include Israeli Prime Minister turned tech investor, Ehud Barak; multi-platinum recording artist turned crypto founder, Akon; actor and activist, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau; the Reverend Jesse Jackson; 2020 Presidential candidate and UBI advocate, Andrew Yang; as well as a trusted group of corporate innovation officers and public policy pros.

Starting as a meetup in 2015, Live! From Tomorrow has quickly grown in popularity and support, producing live events in partnership with Mashable, Google Cloud, SAP, and IBM.
